  9. Absent swimmers

    BBC Sport on the Gold Coast

    Take nothing away from the Australian women’s 4x100m team because their world record of 3:30.05 was out of the world and there’s every chance on today's showing that Cate Campbell will set an individual record later in the week.

    However the fact that out of the whole of Commonwealth only five nations could seemingly find four women to swim 100m freestyle is really quite shocking.

    For all of the really impressive world-class times produced by the top-end nations and swimmers, there is still a real lack of depth across the Commonwealth in this sport.

  10. Post update

    There's still hockey and badminton going on, by the way.

    You can watch the streams at the top of this page.

    I'm really glad we've cleared this up...

  12. Not all good news

    It is not universally good PR for Gold Coast 2018.

    The evening news includes a segment on the transport problems around the opening ceremony.

    Apparently one broken down bus and 2000 people unexpectedly picking the same stop to start their journey to the stadium were to blame.

  15. Leather clad tunes...

    If you hate sport but like your electronica then Gold Coast 2018 loves you too. Back near the beach, where shops pile ice creams and where glasses klink, there’s a stage currently owned by Brisbane act Austen. She’s sounding tip top and the leather trousers are a throw back to the glorious East 17 days.

  16. 'Wilby is a swimmer on the up'


    Nick Hope

    BBC Sport on the Gold Coast

    The 200m breaststroke is a funny event and winning times at major competitions can sometimes be quite a distance from the current world record of 2:06.07.

    Wilby’s time of 2:08.05 may be a way off, but it’s highly competitive and a really impressive personal best from the Englishman who trains with Adam Peaty.

    Did Peaty see this coming and duck the event? We’ll probably never know, but what we do know is that Wilby is a swimmer on the up, while silver medallist Ross Murdoch has endured another dip in his rollercoaster career.

  17. The rest of the home nations

    Commonwealth Games 2018

    Wales take away one medal from day one - Welsh para cyclist James Ball finished as runner-up in the men's B&VI 1,000m time trial.

    Northern Ireland gymnast Rhys McClenaghan is guaranteed a place in the men's artistic gymnastics individual final, while swimmers Conor Ferguson and Calum Bain reached the semi-finals in the 100m backstroke and 50m butterfly.

    Billy Le Poullain became the first boxer to represent Guernsey at any Games but the 22-year-old carpenter from Alderney lost his opening match on points to Pakistan's Zaib Gul.

    Isle of Man swimmer Charlotte Atkinson has made it into the 100m butterfly final.

  18. Scotland on day one

    Commonwealth Games 2018

    Scotland finish the day with five medals.

    In track cycling, Neil Fachie took gold in the men's blind and visually impaired 1000m time trial with a Commonwealth Games record of 1:00.065.

    They secured two medals in the pool, with Ross Murdoch and Hannah Miley taking silver in the men's 200m breaststroke and women's 400m medley.

    The men's gymnastics team finished third and Marc Austin won triathlon bronze.

    There was also celebrations in the men's group stage of the basketball, as Scotland beat England.

  20. Team England round-up

    Commonwealth Games 2018

    England have won six gold medals on day one and currently top the table.

    Max Whitlock helped the artistic gymnastics team to victory and that success was preceded by Sophie Thornhill and pilot Helen Scott taking gold in the blind and visually impaired (B&VI) sprint.

    Swimmer Aimee Willmott made it three golds in a matter of minutes as she won the 400m individual medley.

    Further golds for swimmers James Wilby, Eleanor Robinson and Thomas Hamer took England to the top of the leaderboard.
