Sir Chris Hoy: 'The Commonwealth Games baton's nearly there'

The Queen's Baton Relay has been to 70 nations and territories over nine months as the curtain raiser to the Commonwealth Games and it is now in London.

The baton carries a sealed, secret message written by the Queen, which will be read out at the opening ceremony of the games in Glasgow next month.

The BBC's Ben Moore spoke to Team GB Olympic track cycling gold medallist Chris Hoy, who said the athletes will be excited about the games.
