  1. That's all for today

    That's it from today's Queen's Baton Relay live page.

    It's been a great first day in Glasgow. Shoppers on Buchanan Street stopped for a look at the baton, which also went on a trip on the subway, was carried round Merchant City and George Square before touring the east of the city and visiting Celtic Park.

    Our favourite baton bearer was 93-year-old Jamie Stuart who entertained the crowds with his antics. He also took a shine to one of the police escorts.

    Jamie Stuart

    Tomorrow, the baton relay continues its tour of Glasgow, travelling around the west of the city.

    Get to your bed early if you plan on joining us. Our live coverage starts at 06:45 BST.

    Are you, or is someone you know, taking part in the relay tomorrow? We would love to hear from you.

    You can get the latest news from the baton relay on our website.

  2. Seven-time paralympian Michael McCreadie

    Terrence Campbell with Michael McCreadie

    Multi-medal winning, seven-time Paralympian Michael (pictured on the right with Terrence Campbell) is today's final baton bearer. He won two bronze medals in lawn bowls at the 1976 Summer Paralympics and a silver in curling at the Winter Paralympics in 2006.


  3. Baton bearers - Melodie Crumlin and Margaret Cowie

    Melodie founded the PEEK (Possibilities East End Kids) Project, which works with more than 950 children and young people annually aged between five to 25 to "increase their self-confidence and give them the skills they need to change their lives".

    Melodie passed the baton to Margaret Cowie.

    Margaret has been blind from birth. She has raised more than £250,000 in 30 years for the blind and partially-sighted. She is the chair of many charities including the Scottish Association of Guide Dog Owners, the Royal Blind School, and the National Federation of the Blind West of Scotland branch.

  4. Bye bye Balornock

    Sheila Atkinson (left) and Hayley Calvert (right) were Balornock's final baton bearers, and the relay is now making its way towards today's finish in Springburn Park.

  5. What does it say?

    Sandra Hunter has emailed this picture of her son Jonathan holding the baton with Dr Margo Whiteford, outside Glasgow's city chambers.

    Baton bearer with young boy

    Sandra says he touched the baton but didn't get to read the letter from the Queen.

    Don't worry Jonathan, you only have to wait until Wednesday for Her Majesty to reveal her secret message at the Opening Ceremony.

  6. Where are Crazy Horse?

    Neil Young

    A kilted Neil Young has just carried the baton in Royston.

    Fans of the Canadian singer-songwriter will be disappointed, but not surprised, to find out that it was a different Neil Young.

    Sorry Neil, we imagine you must get people asking you to sing "Heart of Gold" all the time.

  7. Selfie for Stephen!

    The current baton bearer has paused on the steepest part of Royston Road to take a selfie.

    The policeman on the bicycle behind him looks like he's glad of the short break.

  8. Ibrox makeover

    Colin McGregor and two young rugby fans

    Glasgow 2014 tweeted: "The rugby posts are in! Ibrox football stadium transforms as excitement builds for the Games"

  9. Relay in Royston

    Ninety-three-year-old Jamie was the 1948 Scottish two-mile steeplechase champion. He raised thousands of pounds for charities including Save the Children Fund and The Glasgow Lodging House Mission by running five marathons when in his 60's.

    Crowd-pleaser Jamie had some fun on the relay today. He stopped to pose with a police motorcyclist then pretended he was going to throw the baton into the air.

    Clearly a ladies' man, he walked along Alexandra Parade hand-in-hand with one of the police escorts before posing for a picture with a female spectator.

  11. Get involved

    Darren McCann

    Darren McCann emailed: "My dad Gerry McCann carrying the baton with his granddaughter Macie earlier at Wardie Road in Easterhouse."

  13. Guard of honour

    Monika Michon was given a "Grand of Duke of York"-style guard of honour by the police escort as she ended her stint in the relay in Riddrie.

    She then raised both arms aloft and saluted the crowd with the baton.

  14. No boat for baton

    Sorry, it looks like the kayak trip has been cancelled.

    The baton is now in Riddrie, where Amy Allan is first baton bearer.

  15. Hogganfield Loch

    The baton was carried by mountain bike into the parkland surrounding Hogganfield Loch, where it will shortly take a trip on a kayak.

  16. Goodbye Garthamlock, hello Ruchazie

    A waving Reegan Stevenson was the final baton bearer in Garthamlock.

    The relay has now moved to Ruchazie where the first baton bearer, Courtney, is a rhythmic gymnast.

    To the delight of the crowd, she twirled a ribbon as she ran with the baton.

  17. Close but no cigar

    Daniel Odoom with Kirsty Partridge

    Kirsty Partridge (pictured with Daniel Odoom), who has a pair of Commonwealth Games flags embedded in her hair, was well supported during her spell with the baton.

    A cheering group of children wore T-shirts which spelt out K-I-R-S-T-Y.

    Well it would have, if they'd been standing in the right order.

  18. Get involved

  20. Watching us, watching you

    If you're watching the video feed you may have noticed a couple of more animated spectators outside Glasgow Kelvin College.

    Thomas Patterson, who ran a little earlier, certainly looked as though he enjoyed his stint in the relay.

    Looking good in his kilt, he proudly marched along Shettleston Road taking time out to allow spectators to touch the baton.

  24. 'Is that the Queen?'

    A little girl in the crowd was overheard saying, "Is that the Queen?" as baton bearer Moira Robertson went past.

    We have to admit to thinking that there is more than a passing resemblance between Moira and Her Majesty.

    Moira Robertson and James McNeil

    She is pictured receiving the baton from James McNeil, who looks nothing like Prince Philip.

  25. Baton bearer - John O'Hara

    John O'Hara

    The relay has now reached Garrowhill, where John O'Hara is first to carry the baton.

    John worked as a concierge and is now an environmental co-ordinator for Glasgow Housing Association. During his professional career he has prevented suicides, helped a tenant in labour and also reunited families.

    At the end of the concert former Olympians Gregor Tait and Lee McConnell carried the baton on to the stage, to passing it to Ronnie Corbett.
