Hello and welcome to Commonwealth Games Sportsday from Glasgow.

:00:37.:00:41.

I'm Karthi Gnanasegaram. This is your final stop of the

:00:42.:00:45.

evening for all of the best action from today and we'll get everything

:00:46.:00:48.

in before midnight, I promise. Coming up on the programme.

:00:49.:00:50.

Bolt produces a breathtaking performance

:00:51.:01:01.

and a Games record for Jamaica as they take relay gold. Making history

:01:02.:01:04.

in the Hydro - Nicola Adams wins the first gold awarded to a female

:01:05.:01:07.

boxer at the Commonwealth Games. Daley retains his 10m platform

:01:08.:01:10.

title as England reach double medal figures in diving.

:01:11.:01:19.

Good evening from Glasgow. This is Commonwealth Games Sportsday. 250

:01:20.:01:21.

handmade gold medals have been awarded to athletes so far and there

:01:22.:01:25.

are more to come tomorrow but it has been a very soggy Saturday at

:01:26.:01:31.

Hampden Park. Usain Bolt sealed his superstar status with Commonwealth

:01:32.:01:33.

gold, the only medal missing from his collection. There were

:01:34.:01:38.

impressive performances on the track and field from English and Welsh

:01:39.:01:41.

athletes but Jamaica certainly enjoyed tonight's party. Patrick

:01:42.:01:43.

Gearey has our final round up of athletics action from these Games.

:01:44.:01:55.

Here he goes, Usain Bolt has it in his hand. Jamaica go clear. The

:01:56.:02:06.

Usain Bolt show starts. Jamaica qualified. How do you beat the

:02:07.:02:11.

world's fastest nation? Covering the track with raid might be a start.

:02:12.:02:15.

That had stopped by the time the relay team entered the arena. Usain

:02:16.:02:23.

Bolt danced to The Proclaimers song. And then prepared for an iconic 100

:02:24.:02:30.

metres. Usain Bolt has the baton in his hand. Usain Bolt takes the

:02:31.:02:40.

title. It is Glasgow gold for Usain Bolt and Jamaica. England's Danny

:02:41.:02:47.

Talbot battled to live with the legend. The English came away with a

:02:48.:02:52.

silver. The attention was where it always is, with Jamaica and Usain

:02:53.:02:57.

Bolt. Makers of a lasting game 's memory. The female sprinters were

:02:58.:03:01.

Jamaica had broken their games record before the final and it

:03:02.:03:07.

became clear they would do it again. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce will storm

:03:08.:03:13.

to gold. An astonishing statement of Jamaica's sprinting class. There was

:03:14.:03:18.

a significant bronze medal for an English quartet, also. England had

:03:19.:03:24.

been competitive through the men's 4 x 400 metres. It came down to

:03:25.:03:28.

Matthew Hudson-Smith and the Bahamas' Chris Brown. He leads the

:03:29.:03:37.

gold. Hardly the weather for sunglasses, but they will go well

:03:38.:03:41.

with the gold medal. The England women's team were some way behind

:03:42.:03:45.

the Jamaicans are Nigerians, but finished well clear of Australia to

:03:46.:03:49.

take the bronze. This was no night to be in the field. The weather

:03:50.:03:55.

delayed non-track events. Wales' Sally Peake held on tight and got a

:03:56.:04:01.

silver medal. For all the superstars of the show, perhaps the achievement

:04:02.:04:05.

of the evening was Jo Pavey's, the 40-year-old mother of two, who

:04:06.:04:10.

battled with the Kenyan runners and going into the straight they passed

:04:11.:04:14.

her, but the English runner came back one last time. On a golden

:04:15.:04:16.

night, the bravest of bronze medals. The Hydro can certainly rival

:04:17.:04:22.

Hampden Park for history tonight. Just behind me is the venue for the

:04:23.:04:26.

boxing finals and it has been emotional in there. Nicola Adams

:04:27.:04:28.

became the first female ever to win Commonwealth boxing Gold. England's

:04:29.:04:31.

Savannah Marshall also won this evening. While the hosts Scotland

:04:32.:04:35.

secured two more podium topping finishes. Northern Ireland have also

:04:36.:04:38.

had an historic night with their best tally of 9 boxing medals -

:04:39.:04:40.

two of them gold. Tim Hague reports.

:04:41.:05:01.

Here she is on the cusp of claiming the first women's Olympic boxing

:05:02.:05:10.

gold medal. Nicola Adams of Great Britain has just made history. She

:05:11.:05:20.

has done it once and did it again by becoming the first female to win a

:05:21.:05:27.

Commonwealth Games gold medal. But she had to get past 21-year-old from

:05:28.:05:32.

Northern Ireland first. Michaela Walsh. 11 years younger and full of

:05:33.:05:37.

fire and desire. It seems the Olympic champion done enough, but

:05:38.:05:47.

only just. It was a split decision. I am over the moon and overwhelmed.

:05:48.:05:52.

I cannot believe the support I have had through the tournament and I

:05:53.:05:54.

would like to thank everybody who turned up to date and supported me

:05:55.:06:02.

at home. I feel like I have been cheated from a medal. It is not her

:06:03.:06:07.

fault. She is the Olympic champion, they will give it to her. Nicola

:06:08.:06:12.

Adams wasn't the only woman to win gold. Savannah Marshall made it two

:06:13.:06:19.

from two. In men's finals, the home nations dominated with Paddy Barnes

:06:20.:06:23.

of Northern Ireland proving himself once again. He becomes the first

:06:24.:06:30.

British boxer to defend a Commonwealth title ever. His day got

:06:31.:06:34.

better when his friend and roommate Michael Conlan did as well. What of

:06:35.:06:42.

the Scottish finalist? Charlie Flynn had everyone on their feet with his

:06:43.:06:46.

performance. He got the gold medal and talked a good game. Sometimes

:06:47.:06:54.

you need to beat awkwardness. That was the case. It was a hard fight. I

:06:55.:07:02.

am well winded. It looked like his countrymen Josh Taylor was feeling

:07:03.:07:07.

it, but a dog or display of Scottish grit saw him through. The host

:07:08.:07:12.

nation's most successful Commonwealth Games ever got better

:07:13.:07:18.

and better. The old enemy England cannot complain. Top of the medals

:07:19.:07:22.

table and two further gold medals thanks to Scott which Gerald and

:07:23.:07:29.

Anthony Fowler. Both were totally dominant. Before it was left to Joe

:07:30.:07:33.

Joyce in the superheavyweight final to close the show and he did so in

:07:34.:07:38.

perfect styles. Another historic day for the home nations.

:07:39.:07:43.

Quite a medal tally being notched up by home nations boxers while at the

:07:44.:07:48.

Royal Commonwealth Pool it was England leading the way with double

:07:49.:07:51.

medal figures in diving. Tom Daley retained his 10m platform title and

:07:52.:07:53.

alongside Hannah Starling's springboard bronze this has been

:07:54.:07:55.

England's most successful Commonwealth Games for the sport.

:07:56.:07:56.

Nick Hope reports. Since claiming the Olympic bronze at

:07:57.:08:08.

2012 Olympics Tom Daley has been plagued by the Demon dive, the back

:08:09.:08:13.

to an a half somersault to the heart with routine has seen him miss out

:08:14.:08:16.

on medals over the past two years. He claimed to have dealt with it

:08:17.:08:21.

before the competition but in the preliminary he was struggling. His

:08:22.:08:24.

other dive saw him through to the final. There he would deliver a

:08:25.:08:29.

better return on his least favourite routine. It is better than this

:08:30.:08:36.

morning. The Australian 2008 champion struggled from the early

:08:37.:08:40.

round and there was no one to push Tom Daley as Tom Daley successfully

:08:41.:08:47.

defended his title he won in Delhi. Hannah Starling is not fazed by the

:08:48.:08:51.

big occasion. Each dive was greeted with a wave to her parents before

:08:52.:08:56.

delivering a solid routine. Others had more difficult dives, but Hannah

:08:57.:09:03.

Starling was consistent. England finish with an incredible total of

:09:04.:09:08.

ten medals, a confidence boost to the team ahead of the European

:09:09.:09:11.

Championships in less than two weeks.

:09:12.:09:12.

Let's have a look at some of the penultimate day's other news.

:09:13.:09:16.

England's women's hockey team were just 11 seconds away from winning

:09:17.:09:19.

the gold medal - but instead lost on a penalty shootout. Lily Owsley had

:09:20.:09:23.

given England a 1-0 lead but a late Australian equaliser took the game

:09:24.:09:25.

to penalties. Australia won the shoot out 3-1. Disappointment for

:09:26.:09:28.

England's men as well, they lost their semi final against Australia

:09:29.:09:31.

4-1 and will play a bronze medal match against New Zealand tomorrow.

:09:32.:09:39.

It was gold, silver and bronze for England in the table tennis mixed

:09:40.:09:41.

doubles. Husband and wife team, Paul and Joanna Drinkhall top the podium

:09:42.:09:45.

after a net cord at the end of their final against 15-year-old Tin-Tin Ho

:09:46.:09:50.

and Liam Pitchford. Kelly Sibley and Danny Reed took bronze. Pitchford

:09:51.:09:53.

also claimed bronze in the men's singles.

:09:54.:09:57.

Silver and bronze for England too in the women's squash doubles. Laura

:09:58.:10:00.

Massaro and Jenny Duncalf lost to the fifth seeds, Indian pair Dipika

:10:01.:10:02.

Pallikal and Joshana Chinappa to take silver, as they did four years

:10:03.:10:06.

ago. While Emma Beddoes and Alison Waters claimed bronze.

:10:07.:10:13.

Amantle Montsho of Botswana, who finished fourth in the women's 400

:10:14.:10:16.

metre final earlier this week, has been provisionally suspended from

:10:17.:10:18.

the Games after testing positive for a banned stimulant. Testing of a

:10:19.:10:21.

second sample will take place on Monday.

:10:22.:10:30.

There was a silver medal in the para-sport powerlifting lightweight

:10:31.:10:33.

competition for England's Natalie Blake. While her compatriot Ali

:10:34.:10:35.

Jawad took bronze in the men's event. The top honours though were

:10:36.:10:38.

taken by international athletes. With news of those and some of the

:10:39.:10:41.

more surprising moments you might have missed here's the eagle eyed

:10:42.:10:42.

Drew Savage. Singapore signed off with five gold

:10:43.:10:55.

medals in table tennis. Success guaranteed in the singles.

:10:56.:11:05.

Singapore's women were unstoppable. They contested the singles final

:11:06.:11:08.

yesterday and in the doubles were too good for Australia. The last

:11:09.:11:12.

night of boxing provided blood, sweat and tears. This 18-year-old

:11:13.:11:18.

was overwhelmed after taking the light heavyweight title in New

:11:19.:11:22.

Zealand. And a sweet night for the man known as sweet Sammy. He struck

:11:23.:11:27.

Commonwealth gold for Canada at the age of 33. Not a bad night for the

:11:28.:11:31.

Australians with Shelley what's winning the first lightweight gold

:11:32.:11:42.

medal. -- Watts. Two gold medals for Nigeria in the para-sport

:11:43.:11:58.

powerlifting. Loveline Obiji was successful in the heavyweight class.

:11:59.:12:06.

Relieved to finally get the better of England in the deciding game in

:12:07.:12:12.

the semifinals, the Indian needed five match points to clinch it. That

:12:13.:12:15.

was not his lucky racket! He will hope for a better souvenir in

:12:16.:12:19.

tomorrow's final. Drew Savage.

:12:20.:12:26.

Badminton still has five gold medals to be won tomorrow but the table

:12:27.:12:29.

on this penultimate day of action has England top with 56 golds.

:12:30.:12:31.

England can't be surpassed by Australia who are on 45 gold

:12:32.:12:34.

medals Canada are in third place above the Hosts, Scotland,

:12:35.:12:37.

who have smashed their previous best of 33 medals - Scotland now with 52

:12:38.:12:45.

in total, 19 of them gold. Wales are in 12th with 4 golds

:12:46.:12:48.

Northern Ireland's boxing medals today means

:12:49.:12:54.

We have been taking a look behind the scenes of the Commonwealth

:12:55.:13:00.

Games. The medals are beautiful, but some athletes have not been too

:13:01.:13:04.

careful with them. It is the nightmare sub -- scenario. That

:13:05.:13:11.

moment when you cannot remember where your medal in -- medal is. And

:13:12.:13:20.

Nicola Adams creating history, she said, I did it. This is her with

:13:21.:13:28.

Clyde. Apparently he is sold out. A lot of athletes say they are happy

:13:29.:13:34.

with the games. The pictures of Usain Bolt this evening,

:13:35.:13:38.

unbelievable. The action has been incredible. I looked back at some of

:13:39.:13:40.

the more memorable moments. It gives me the greatest pleasure to

:13:41.:13:51.

declare the 20th Commonwealth Games open. It started with a bang. Could

:13:52.:14:12.

the sport live up to the billing? Some of the big stars were missing,

:14:13.:14:17.

but those who signed up were ready to create their own Commonwealth

:14:18.:14:24.

dreams. Alistair Brownlee is now the Commonwealth champion. The big guns

:14:25.:14:29.

came out blazing and most hit the target. I am dying, but I am not

:14:30.:14:39.

losing the race! Some weathered under the dish Mac withered under

:14:40.:14:46.

the weight of expectation. It was an emotional end of the road for some

:14:47.:14:51.

of them, but others had an unbelievable start to their journey.

:14:52.:14:55.

Under the spotlight, those who dared to dream delivered. The people of

:14:56.:15:04.

Scotland have embraced it. A teenager's twists and turns lead to

:15:05.:15:07.

gold medals galore. Claudia Fragapane. There were flips and

:15:08.:15:16.

flops. And roofs were raised by huge crowds as records fell and new

:15:17.:15:22.

champions were crowned. The king of the track caused controversy. What

:15:23.:15:26.

do you think of the games? They are awesome. When he got down to

:15:27.:15:35.

business, he was like lightning. The rain fell, but mostly the sun shone.

:15:36.:15:41.

The fans flocked. They witnessed emotional moments. This meant

:15:42.:15:44.

everything and there was no way I would go through everything I have

:15:45.:15:48.

been through and not get a medal today. Those who did not come missed

:15:49.:15:54.

a fantastic party. We thank Glasgow for it. Tomorrow night, the sun will

:15:55.:16:04.

set on the 20th Commonwealth Games and the baton will be passed to the

:16:05.:16:08.

gold coast of Australia. I think you were trying to make me cry with that

:16:09.:16:13.

piece. What was your favourite memory?

:16:14.:16:19.

Probably the side of a 13-year-old girl of the Shetland Islands,

:16:20.:16:27.

realising she had taken a bronze medal. And, Usain Bolt, dancing to

:16:28.:16:35.

the Proclaimers. I hear he is DJ in town, I wonder if he has 500 Miles

:16:36.:16:44.

on the wheels of steel. Thank you for giving us a behind-the-scenes

:16:45.:16:45.

glimpse. That is it for Commonwealth Games

:16:46.:16:49.
