24 May 2014 Last updated at 19:39 BST

The Queen's Baton Relay has spent the first of its seven days in Wales, after arriving by plane at Cardiff Airport just after 11:00 BST on Saturday.

Despite the rain, crowds turned out at Six Bells, Abertillery, where 82-year-old pit disaster survivor Joseph Price was among the baton bearers.

A total of 177 people will carry the baton in Wales. It contains a message to athletes from the Queen.

The first baton relay was held in 1958 ahead of the Cardiff Games.

Claire Summers reports on the baton's itinerary.
