Lining the street leading to the stage people sip a few drinks and just soak up the healthy atmosphere.

'I just pretended they were teddy bears'

Table tennis: 11-year-old Anna Hursey reflects on first Commonwealths

Tom Brown

BBC Sport Wales on the Gold Coast

Winning three matches at your first Games is impressive no matter what your age, but achieving it aged 11 is something else.

Cardiff schoolgirl Anna Hursey was knocked out of the women's singles last night.

But she told me she's found the Games 'really good' and has even found time to do her German homework.

Even walking out into the opening ceremony didn't faze her - as the crowd were so small she says she just pretended they were teddy bears...

Grabarz hints at quitting athletics

Athletics: Men's high jump final

It was a hugely disappointing day for Robbie Grabarz, who failed to clear any of his jumps in the high jump, and the 30-year-old, who won an Olympic bronze in 2012, has hinted that he will quit the sport.

He told BBC One: "I'm not enjoying competing at the moment, I can't pinpoint why.

"I opened up well at the beginning of the season, I'm just not enjoying it. I have to find that pleasure or find something else to do. It is not like I'm in bad shape."

Andy Mullen: Proven drugs cheat wins #CommonwealthGames 400m title. A disgrace. An insult to all fair competition & decent athletes. #Montsho

Montsho was banned for two years for doping after testing positive at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The 31-year-old from Botswana tested positive for the stimulant methylhexaneamine after the 400m final in Glasgow, where she finished fourth. Her "A" and back-up "B" samples both returned positive results.

The Canadian pair are second after four dives

England's chances of a medal look slim now, with just one more dive remaining, despite their most synchronised dive so far in the fourth round, which earns them 62.40 points.

They're up to fifth, but are 26.28 points off the medals.

Meanwhile, the battle for silver and bronze between Canada, Australia and Malaysia's second pair is extremely tight!

Proud parents

Diving: Men's 1m springboard final

Nick Hope

BBC Sport on the Gold Coast

“We’re so proud of him, but it was agony to watch,” James Heatly’s parents - Debs and Robert tell me after their son claims Scotland’s first diving medal since his grandfather in 1958.

“It wasn’t always easy for him growing up and knowing the success that his grandfather had, had and people always talking about it because they were different eras of the sport,” they continued.

“His grandfather (Sir Peter Heatly) was able to watch him dive at Glasgow 2014 and I know that meant a lot to the pair of them.

“He would be so proud of James today, as are we and who knows what he could go on to achieve now.”

Here we have Team Garside - here to support Australian hope Harry Garside.

He guaranteed a medal earlier, beating Scotland’s Nathaniel Collins at 60kg.

His mum explains he’s been boxing nine years and that the 20-year-old’s dream is to win Olympic gold.

He is chasing a gold here now and his mum says she feels “sick” with nerves watching him, adding: “I’m so very proud.”

It is frantic in the stadium, another race, another gold. This time Amantle Botswana is the woman celebrating, taking the gold in the women's 400m.

It is silver and bronze for Jamaica, thanks to Anastaia Le Roy and Stephenie McPherson, respectively. McPherson had won this race in Glasgow four years ago.

Women’s synchronised 10m platform final

While Malaysia's first pair continue to extend their lead, England's Robyn Birch and Lois Toulson - with their forward three-and-a-half somersaults in pike - are not quite close enough together with their rotations, spinning at slightly different speeds, and post a 57.60, to move to 150.00 points overall, but slip down to sixth. They're now 16 points below bronze medal position.

Bowls: Mixed B2/B3 Pairs - bronze medal match - Wales 12-12 Scotland

What a game! Wales, who led comfortably after the fifth end, were clawed back by Scotland and trailed going into the 14th end.

They are now back on equal terms at the start of the 16th end. It's all to play for in this bronze medal match.

Gold Medal - Luvo Manyonga (South Africa)

Athletics: Men's long jump final

What's this? An event Australia don't win?

Henry Frayne, the last man to go in the long jump, has the full backing of the crowd, but the dreaded red flag is shown and he can only foul with his last attempt.

That means Luvo Manyonga of South Africa takes the gold thanks to a best leap of 8.41m, a new Games' record. Australian Frayne's best mark of 8.33m is good enough for silver, with Ruswahl Samaai, another South African, taking the bronze.

Isis Holt

This must be what it felt like to be at Super Saturday as an outsider.

Everywhere you look the host nation's flag is fluttering, wherever you are not looking you hear a cheer as another Australian pulls a mammoth performance out the locker.

Isis Holt, winner of the T35 100m, is the latest to tour the circumference draped in the flag.

The imperious Malaysians already look likely to take gold, leaving everyone else to fight for silver and bronze.

For England's pair, a 46.80 from their second-round dive keeps them in fifth, 5.40 points off the medal places.

England's Robyn Birch and Lois Toulson start their final relatively well, given that they've only been training together for a very short period of time.

The English pair post a 45.60 in round one, to sit fifth out of six so far.

Malaysia's first pair - the favourites here, after their Olympic silver in Rio - lay down a very impressive earlier marker with a 52.8 to lead.

'Really pleased with the medal'

Women's T35 100m

Scotland's Maria Lyle, who took second in the women's T35m 100m, says: "It is great, I knew Isis [Holt] would be ahead, I'm really pleased to win the silver but disappointed with my performance. I have been running better than that.

"I was really nervous coming into the competition, it was the biggest crowd I have raced against. I'm really pleased with the medal."

'An amazing feeling'

Women's T35 100m

Australian Isis Holt, who has just won the gold medal in the women's T35 100m event, tells BBC One: "I'm speechless, this race meant so much to be and has for so long.

"It is an amazing feeling. It is so special. My main goal was to win that race, a PB would have been amazing but you can't have everything."

She is very smooth and she dominates this sport now. She's 16 years old. We haven't scratched the surface of what she's capable of. She's fluid.

It's going to be a meet to remember for her. We can't forget about Maria Lyle either, she's had a couple of injury problems. I know Maria will come in there at some point.
