Full coverage of results and medals table 

Six days after arriving in Glasgow the Jamaican is due to take to the track for the heats of the 4x100 metres in the Commonwealth Games.

His brief stay has been a controversial one after he reportedly delivered a staggering slur on his Glasgow experience - it has been denied by the man himself - but the Games' star attraction can still expect to receive a rousing reception from another full house inside the national stadium.

His anchor-leg run will only last nine seconds, but he is the man everyone in Glasgow wants to see.

His welcome would still have to go some way to match the reception afforded to home favourite Eilidh Child, the poster girl of the Games, as she claimed 400m hurdles silver.

Child, whose pictures are plastered on billboards across the city, was beaten to gold by the classy Jamaican Kaliese Spencer, who won in 54.10 seconds, but there was no hiding the Scot's delight.

She said: "I put down a really good race, I stepped off that track knowing I had given it everything and I'm just delighted to come away with a silver medal.

"I knew I would have to be on my A game to beat Kaliese and she ran faster than my best there so I think the right lady won, but I'm just so happy with how I ran.

"I put on a good performance. It was not enough for gold, but I will cherish my silver medal. That's one of my best moments ever."

The Hearts fan celebrated by mocking her team's great rivals Hibernian, making a 5-1 sign with her hands in reference to the result in the 2012 Scottish Cup final - although she had to complete her lap of honour to the strains of The Proclaimers, huge Hibs fans.

There was English success too, notably in the women's 200m where Jodie Williams took silver and Bianca Williams bronze, the young duo helping lead the resurgence in British women's sprinting.

Jodie, a prodigious junior, landed her maiden senior major championship by clocking 22.50secs to go joint second on the British all-time list, while Bianca also ran a personal best of 22.58s.

There was another silver courtesy of 20-year-old Jazmin Sawyers, a former bobsleigh medallist at the Winter Youth Olympics competing at her first major Championships, in the long jump.

She upgraded from bronze with her final jump of the competition, leaping out to 6.54m, a personal best, and said: "At the start of the year winning a Commonwealth medal was a pipe dream. Now I've actually won one I can't believe it."

Tonight, Tiffany Porter will go head to head with Olympic champion Sally Pearson for 100m hurdles gold, while Jessica Judd, Jenny Meadows and home favourite Lynsey Sharp go in the 800m final.
