Did Blake lack focus?

Men's 100m final

Michael Johnson

Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC TV

Blake's start was so bad. It's horribly disappointing for him.

It could be from a lack of focus in the blocks. He hasn't had a lot of experience of being the race favourite lately and contending for gold.

Blake reacts to bronze

Men's 100m final

Yohan Blake tells BBC TV: "I stumbled at the start. I lost from the start.

"It would have been a good way to get back on top. It's really frustrating for me."

'Phenomenal' Simbine

Men's 100m final

Colin Jackson

Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on the Gold Coast

Yohan Blake will be really frustrated with that performance. He'll be really furious.

In contrast, it was a phenomenal performance from Simbine. He did the job in every single way.

Men's 100m

It just didn't click for Yohan Blake.

He was staggering coming out of the blocks and by the time he got himself into a decent position, Akani Simbine had gone roaring past him.

Men's 100m final

Steve Cram

Commentator on the Gold Coast

Blake stuttered and faltered out the blocks. What on earth went wrong for the Jamaican? He couldn't get going, he couldn't get his legs from out underneath him.

Gold Medal - Akani Simbine (South Africa)

Men's 100m

Well then!

It's a South African one-two: Akani Simbine finishes in 10.03 seconds, with Henricho Bruintjies in silver.

Jamaica's Yohan Blake is forced to settle for bronze, with a time of 10.19 seconds.

England's Robbie Grabarz qualified for the men's high jump final with a best of 2.21m earlier today, but admits his performance "wasn't great".

The 30-year-old said: “It was alright - it wasn’t great but I did enough to get through. I have eyes on the gold of course, everyone in that final will, otherwise why are you here?

"It’s my first Commonwealth Games, right at the end of my career. I’ve enjoyed it so far and I’m looking forward to the final.”

The men's high jump final takes place on Wednesday.

Blake the favourite

Men's 100m final

Michael Johnson

Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC TV

This is an opportunity for Yohan Blake to finish his career on a high.

He's not a young athlete, he's never won a Commonwealth title and he's the favourite here.

Keep an eye on Kemar Hyman as well, who could certainly challenge.

Men's 100m final

Time for the men's event - there's no England's Adam Gemili, who qualified but was later withdrew with injury.

Jamaica's Yohan Blake is competing in this one, as is South Africa's Akani Simbine.

'Supreme' Le Clos

Adrian Moorhouse

Well, well, well... Chad is supreme.

He shows great flexibility and James Guy is not able to catch him.

He's South Africa's third gold medal of the night.

Men's 100m butterfly final

Chad Le Clos sets a new games record for gold, with England's James Guy gets silver.

Potatoes and a cut out of Damon Kelly

The cardboard cutout peering over spuds in the market says Australia’s Damon Kelly can lift 1,754 potatoes.

He came fifth in the men’s 105kg competition a short while ago. Time for Damon to progress to 1,754 marrows if he’s going to one day conquer.

Men's 100m butterfly final

We're on to the final race of the day in the pool! And it's a very competitive field featuring South African Chad le Clos and England's James Guy.

Will Le Clos take his 16th Commonwealth medal?

Victory for New Zealand

New Zealand v Scotland

It's a resounding victory for New Zealand as they triumph 60-29 over Scotland.

The Scots look subdued but they shouldn't - they put out a good performance but their opponents proved too strong.
