Scotland's effervescent boxer Charlie Flynn is my new favourite athlete. I can barely understand his thick Lanarkshire accent, but what I do understand is incredibly funny. His best gag...

Amir Khan: "What do you plan to do after this Commonwealth gold?"

Charlie Flynn (straight-faced): "Sorry? Can you say that again? I didn't understand you."

John Inverdale: "Commonwealth gold."

Charlie Flynn (laughing): "Aye, that's right. I just wanted to hear you say it again!"

Legend.

Joe Joyce, winner of Commonwealth men's super-heavyweight boxing gold, reveals how a change in his pre-fight routine aided his bid for success following disappointments in the recent World and European Championships, where he was stopped by Russian Sergey Kuzmin after just 49 seconds of his semi-final.

"I have been learning the hard way in the Europeans and the Worlds so I made it right for this one," Joyce says. "I was a bit unlucky in the Europeans, I got rushed on and didn't get a proper warm-up but I've got my preparation right to come out fast and switched on."

Medal table

Good news for Team England on the medal chase. Not only have they smashed their pre-Games target, they are also assured of sitting proudly on top of the final medal table.

England are 11 gold medals clear of nearest rivals Australia, who can only win a maximum of six golds tomorrow. You don't need a GCSE Maths grade to work out that they can't be caught.

"I had one team left to get today, to complete the challenge of finding and interviewing one athlete from all 71 nations and territories represented at the Commonwealth Games. The last nation remaining: Scotland.

"I needed somebody who particularly embodied Scotland. The athlete I found has played the bagpipes at international level, her boyfriend is the keyboard player in Runrig, and she spoke Gaelic before she could speak English.

"But Kerry MacPhee, a triathlete turned mountain biker from South Uist who finished 13th in her race earlier this week, represents more than bagpipes. She is "our Kerry" across the Outer Hebrides - the only athlete from that part of Scotland to reach an event like this for half a century, and the only woman from the islands ever to compete in a Commonwealth Games.

MacPhee says she had no local sporting role models to watch on TV, growing up. Now she knows she has the responsibility of inspiring others like her and she's determined to be back at the next Commonwealth Games, on Australia's Gold Coast, in four years' time. See more from her - and the beautiful Cathkin Braes mountain bike trails - on BBC One's Tonight at the Games.

Savannah Marshall, winner of Commonwealth boxing gold in the women's middleweight division, insists there is still much more to come having only recently come back from nine months out with a shoulder injury.

"I think I'm far from my best and I've still got a long way to come back but I think it will just take time," Marshall says. "I think I'm used to these multi-sports events now and I've got a lot of good experience under my belt.

"Obviously I'm looking forward to the World Championships later this year but you're only as good as your last fight so I can't take anything for granted."

England's Antony Fowler, winner of Commonwealth boxing gold in the men's middleweight division, hopes his success in Glasgow will help him step out of the shadows of his more famous cousin, former Liverpool footballer Robbie.

"I want to be my own man. Football has 11 players but I'm doing it all on my own - I'm my own person," he says. "When I was an 11-year-old boy I saw guys winning the Commonwealth bronze and thought they were superstars - 12 years later I'm here winning gold and I'm so proud of myself.

"It's been nine months of work - I didn't drink over Christmas and I was in the gym Christmas Eve. I've had two weeks off since then. I was levels above the people here and this is just the start for me - I'm a man on the mission and I'm going to the Olympics."

Usain Bolt tells BBC Radio 5 Live about his hopes for next season after winning Commonwealth Games gold in the 4x1000m relay:

"I just hope I can stay injury-free next season," he said. "I want to run sub-19 seconds and that's one of my biggest goals and biggest dreams.

"My main aim is the 200m. I think I've done enough in the 100m. I love my 200m and want to do something special in 200m."

With his 28th birthday approaching later in August, Bolt said: "I've just got to work a little bit harder, put more work in and don't go out as much as I used to. Just change it up a little bit in my life and everything will be OK."

Usain Bolt after leading Jamaica to 4x100m relay gold: "It means a lot. Commonwealth gold is the only medal missing from my collection.

"I'm happy to be here and sorry I didn't manage to run the individual events because the energy out here is wonderful."

Speaking of the lap of honour, Bolt added: "Way too much selfies, but it was good, I had fun. It's making the lap of honour longer and harder. It used to be autographs; now all they want is selfies."

England's Gabby Adcock says she has the "upmost respect" for opponent Lai Ping Jing after she and Lauren Smith claimed bronze in the women's doubles.

The English pair needed 83 minutes to complete an exhausting 2-1 win against Malaysia's Lai and Loo Yin Lim. Defeat was especially tough on Lai, who played four matches in a packed day - and lost them all.

Adcock said: "I've so much respect for her. You could see how much she wanted it and I almost feel sorry for her. She fought all the way but we wanted it just as much.

Scotland's Imogen Bankier cried after winning bronze with Robert Blair in the mixed doubles.

The duo lost to England's Chris and Gabby Adcock in the semi-finals earlier on Saturday but came back to win the bronze-medal play-off.

Bankier said: "The season building up to this week has been very stressful at times. We have had amazing highs and terrible lows, all for this tournament.

"Losing this morning was incredibly disappointing, so to pick ourselves up from that and come out and perform this evening was a challenge. But we are so happy and it is very special to do it in front of a home crowd."

"Scotland's Charlie Flynn, a postman from up the road, battled his way to the final and won. Team-mate Josh Taylor followed and Northern Ireland's Paddy Barnes won back-to-back gold medals for the men.

"Just like it was in London 2012, there were people that were sceptical about women's boxing. In general, the women's competition has been fearsome. Savannah Marshall restored some glory for herself with a gold medal."

Commonwealth Games 10m diving gold medallist Tom Daley on BBC Two: "I have been trying new and different things with a new coach this year and they are starting to pay off now. Any athlete will tell you the first year after the Olympics is very tough - I was riddled with injuries. But this has been a really good year for me.

"British diving is in a really good place at the moment. To get more Commonwealth medals than ever before shows the legacy of London 2012. Hopefully there will now be a legacy to come from Glasgow 2014. I think in 10 years we could be the most dominant team in the Commonwealths and even the world."

The colourful Londoner finished fifth with a jump of 16.45m - the only legitimate leap that he managed. South Africa's Khotso Mokoena, who finished second behind Idowu in Melbourne, gained revenge to take gold with a seasonal-best mark of 17.20,.

"Nice work from the Jamaican team and also from the English team. You have to give those English guys a lot of credit - there were a lot of teams in there who could have messed it up for them. But this is what it is all about. Usain Bolt.

"It has been a great combination. The 100m individual wouldn't have been as great - or competitive - a race with Usain Bolt in it but we got to see him run in the relay. It is absolutely possible he will be at the top of the heap come Rio 2016 but will he be as fast as 2008/09? I don't think so.

"The injuries take their toll. But they have done him a service for the future in a way because they have meant he has had to take time out. He is going to have to be careful in terms of how he manages his body."

Among the 195 athletes which started the night hoping to nick a gold medal, there was one name which immediately leapt out. You know who I'm talking about. Usain Bolt.

Jamaica's six-time Olympic champion is still the star attraction in Glasgow, proved by his eagerly-anticipated appearance in Friday's 4x100m relay semi-finals.

Would those alleged disparaging remarks turn the Hampden crowd against him? Not a chance. From the moment he charmed the teenage girl carrying his kit to the tongue-in-cheek message for BBC Sport presenter Gabby Logan - oh, with a sub-10 seconds anchor leg sandwiched in-between - Bolt stole the show.
