Your Scotland Live team are signing off after another great day of action from the Glasgow 2014 games.

We'll be back tomorrow morning at 09:00 BST to bring you regular updates on the day's news, sport, travel and weather across the country.

So it's good night from us, and goodnight from our new friends who have just popped into the newsroom for a tour.

Charlie Flynn and Josh Taylor

Tomorrow's action

There's at least one guaranteed Scottish medal on the final day of the Commonwealth Games, as Kirsty Gilmour competes in the gold medal match of the badminton women's singles.

There's also the prospect of bronze in the squash men's doubles where Alan Clyne and Harry Leitch take on Daryl Selby and James Wilstrop of England.

In the men's road race David Millar will be desperate to claim gold in what will be his final race at a major multi-sport event before retiring.

And Katie Archibald will look to add to the bronze she won on the track in the women's event.

Super Saturday round-up

The penultimate day of action from the Commonwealth Games did not disappoint.

Team Scotland racked up their 50th medal when the mail man Charlie Flynn delivered gold in the light 60kg final.

More medal glory followed when Josh Taylor took gold in the light welter 64kg event, while Imogen Bankier and Robert Blair took bronze in the badminton mixed doubles.

Chris O'Hare finished in a respectable sixth place in the men's 1,500m and Micky Yule was pipped to bronze in the para powerlifting heavyweight group A (from 72.1kg) event by Malaysia's Jong Yee Khie.

Scotland's women did well in the 5,000m with Laura Whittle sixth, Elizabeth Potter ninth and Stephanie Twell 14th and Grace Reid finished ninth in the 3m springboard dive final.

The heavens opened over Hampden Park and we found out that Jamaica are still the best 4x100m relay team, and Usain Bolt isn't afraid to wear a tartan bonnet.

Yellow warning

The Met Office has

issued a yellow warning of rain, which is valid from 00:15 BST to 23:00 BST on Sunday.

An area of persistent and at times heavy rain will continue to move north across much of Scotland. Winds will become strong, with a risk of gales over coasts and hills.

The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding and of disruption to transport.

Usain Bolt

Not everyone's happy

Not everyone has bought into Usain Bolt bringing a feel-good factor to the Games.

Fergie in Aberdeen texted 80295 to say: "How nice of Bolt to do what his sponsors have ordered him to do and put on this cringing act!!! He is a fraud!!!"

And Mick in Glasgow is suffering from a case of Games fatigue: "All that seems to matter in life nowadays is selfies, the world has gone mad including BBC presenters. Roll on the football season and normality."

Normality and Scottish football in the same sentence?

Usain Bolt

tweets: "Glasgow was fun..great team work to get the baton around.. TeamJamaica all day everyday #glasgow2014…"

Winning over the crowd

He may not like the Glasgow weather, but Usain Bolt has certainly won over the crowd at Hampden by dancing to The Proclaimers and parading with a Saltire around his neck.

An impressive final leg of the men's 4x100m might have helped.

Usain Bolt

Scottish athletics legend

Lee McConnell and BBC Scotland commentator tweets: "Another great night of athletics at Hampden stadium. Gutted this track will not be used again. What I'm going to do with myself tomorrow!"

Trains update

More from

@ScotRail: "Going from Glasgow Qn St to Stirling tonight? Catch replacement buses at 2218 and 2248. Get on in North Hanover Street. Thank you."

Pub quiz moment

The gold won by Usain Bolt in that relay now means that all 16 competitors featured in the BBC Commonwealth titles have won medals - 13 gold, 16 silver, 2 bronze.

Kudos for the first to name all 16...

#ScotlandLive with the answer.

Busy trains

@ScotRail tweets: Trains for destinations north of Glasgow: please queue beside Glasgow Qn St TravelShop in main concourse.

Mount Florida, Glasgow Central and Glasgow Queen Street are all expected to be busy as the crowd makes their way home after the athletics in Hampden.

He came, he saw...he moaned about the rain...he delivered! Jamaica roar home to victory in the men's 4x100m relay with Usain Bolt running the decisive final leg.

Usain Bolt

England were in contention until Bolt took the baton and from then on the result was never in doubt.

Cometh the hour...

They're warming up on the track, and the final of the men's 4x100m relay is about to start, and a certain Mr Bolt is showing off his dance moves to the delight of a packed Hampden.

Edinburgh action

There's been plenty of action in Edinburgh today.

Baton charge

Scotland's men's 4x400m relay team earn a fifth-placed finish at a rain-soaked Hampden. It was a strong run, but not enough to get near the medals.

England won gold with the Bahamas second and Trinidad and Tobago picking up bronze.

Snorkel for Bolt?

Heavy weight

It looks to be all over for Michael Yule in the powerlifting as he fails with his third lift - almost 40 kilos over double his body weight. Malaysia's Jong Yee Khie is all set to take bronze.

Water washout

You can see why the start of the women's pole vault final has been delayed.

It's a ninth place finish for 18-year-old Grace Reid in the 3m women's springboard final despite a gallant effort.

Max power

In powerlifting, Michael Yule is sitting in fourth place after one lift - only 12 points separate second from fourth though.

Grace Reid's gravity-defying dives have her moving up the leaderboard in the women's 3m springboard final, but it looks like she will fall short of a medal.
