BBC Sport - Commonwealth Games baton heads for Gold Coast

Games baton heads for Gold Coast

With Glasgow 2014 now a fading memory, the countdown has begun to the 2018 Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast.

On Commonwealth Day, the Queens Baton began its journey from Buckingham Palace to travel around the globe.

Thousands of baton bearers will carry the Baton on the longest Queen's Baton Relay in Commonwealth Games history and will be in Scotland on 22-28 August.
