    Thank you Glasgow

    Unfortunately all great parties have to end at some time. And that time is now. The Commonwealth Games in Glasgow has been fantastic, but now it is over.

    The baton has now been passed on to Gold Coast in Australia. The standard has been set, this is going to take some beating.

    And that's also a goodbye from me. Thank you for joining us and for all of your comments and interaction. We hope you have enjoyed BBC Sport's coverage of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

    All that's left is for me to point you in the direction of the Commonwealth Games index, where you will see all the stories and best clips for your enjoyment. Goodbye.

    Medal table

    So this is how the medal table finished. Both England and Scotland won more gold medals and more medals overall than they had done at any previous Games. Wales also picked up more medals than ever before.

  3. Day 11 round-up

    Road cycling

    Which all brings us on to today, the final day of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

    England were pipped for bronze in netball, but won the same colour medal in men's hockey. Peter Kennaugh made an attempt to lead from the front in the men's cycling road race before being caught at about 120km. Wales's Geraint Thomas was the man celebrating at the end as he won the fifth gold medal for his country.

    Lizzie Armitstead

    England's Lizzie Armitstead won the women's race. She said: "It's been fantastic, I've been so used to silvers so it's great to get a gold. Today was a fantastic platform for us to show what women's cycling is all about."

    Nick Matthew missed out on a second squash gold medal, losing in the men's doubles final.

    Steve Cram

    BBC Sport athletics commentator

    "There are people for whom this serious business. Usain Bolt is at a part of his career where it is about giving something back. He didn't have to come but he knows what he is in world sport. I hope it has refreshed his desire to still be a part of our sport."

  8. Day 10 round-up

    Athletics

    Usain Bolt brought the Commonwealth Games athletics to a fitting finale in Glasgow as he anchored Jamaica to 4x100m relay gold and then partied with the thrilled Hampden crowd.

    Usain Bolt

    Bolt took the baton for the final leg level with England's Danny Talbot and, despite it being only his second competitive outing of the season, accelerated away in classic style as Talbot hung on for silver.

    England won more golds than Manchester 12 years ago and topped the medal table for the first time since 1986, the last time the Games were staged in Scotland.

    Team England chef de mission Jan Paterson said: "Our aspiration was to put ourself back up the medal table, which we've done, and we are delighted with the style that we've done it.

    "I am immensely proud of Team England, to come back after a disappointing time at the Dehli 2010 Commonwealth Games has been fantastic. We smashed our target.

    "The average age of our athletes is 24 years old, so to have a young group that is well experienced should mean the future is bright for us."

  11. 'Bodes well for the future'

    Louise Hazel

    BBC Sport athletics expert on BBC Radio 5 live

    One of the most emotional moments came on day nine from Scotland's Lynsey Sharp, who claimed silver in the women's 800m.

    She had been on a hospital drip earlier that day after struggling with illness. At the closing ceremony, she told BBC Sport: "It's not sunk in yet, I've hardly spent any time on my own over the last 48 hours

    "I remember before the games, a taxi driver said to me 'if you win a medal, it will change your life forever'. These Games have brought so much happiness and fun to the city."

    Tom Daley is enjoying himself at the closing ceremony. England's diving gold medal winner said: "The whole Games has been amazing, and so friendly. It's nice to retain my title, but it's also been great seeing the younger divers coming through."

    A great meteorological sound-bite from Kirani James, Grenada's 400m track gold medallist. "It's been an amazing experience. Scotland showed itself as true fans of athletics, and of the Commonwealth Games.

    "Of course, you can't control the weather, you just have to deal with it. To be honest, the crowd cancel out the weather with the warmth of their support."

    Athletics

    Greg Rutherford added Commonwealth long jump gold to his Olympic title on a strong day for England at Glasgow 2014.

    Greg Rutherford

    Rutherford, who won silver in Delhi four years ago, had an epidural injection in the build-up to make it to qualifying after pulling out of the Diamond League event here with injury.

    But after his first round 8.12 metres was matched by South Africa's Zarck Visser, his championship pedigree told as he produced a third round 8.20m to snatch a lead that none of his rivals could threaten.

  26. Day seven round-up

    Gymnastics

    Claudia Fragapane (Gold Medal) is kissed by compatriots Ruby Harrold (Silver Medal) and Hannah Whelan (Bronze Medal)

    Claudia Fragapane leads an England 1-2-3 in the women's all-around gymnastics. A remarkable performance from the 16-year-old.

    She scored 14.733 to win gold with a total of 56.132, just ahead of Ruby Harrold (55.232) and Hannah Whelan (54.699). Tears of joy all round in the England camp.

  27. Change of outfit for Kylie

    Kylie Minogue

    "I'm pretty sure there's a few lovers in the audience tonight." Kylie gets to the point. She has now changed out of the 'saucy basque' (see 22:17) and is now wearing a short white skirt.

    Can't Get You Out of My Head, one of her best known classics, is thrilling the crowd now.

  28. Day six round-up

    Swimming

    There were even more swimming golds for British swimmers on day six, including for England's Ben Proud and Wales' Georgia Davies.

  29. The view from Down Under

    A banner at the closing ceremony

    Quentin Hull, of ABC Radio in Australia, tells BBC Radio 5 live's Mark Pougatch about how the games have gone down with the 2018 host nation.

    "Its been judged as a pretty good games, we knew the strength of the home nations would be pretty good after London 2012. You have pumped a lot of money into sport like we did around Sydney 2000.

    "But you've been wonderful hosts, as ever - two years ago it was magnificent in London and Glasgow has been the same, as it needed to be after the shambles of Delhi."

    It's early Monday morning in Australia. Are they 'doing the Locomotion' too? Let's hope so.

  30. Do the Locomotion

    We have seen a host of records fall during this Commonwealth Games. We may have just witnessed another. I don't believe there has ever been as many athletes 'doing the Locomotion' as Kylie sings loudly. Another proud moment for the Games there.

  31. Day six round-up

    Athletics

    Andrew Osagie

    There was a bit of argy-bargy during the men's 800m as England's Andrew Osagie and Joe Thomas of Wales had a few cross words at the end of the third heat after the pair collide while desperately trying to grab the third qualifying place.

    Osagie, who ended up on the track just after crossing the line and finishing third, ahead of Thomas in fourth, tells BBC One that he didn't do anything wrong.

    "He shouted at me at the end saying 'what was I doing', but I was running as straight as I can," says Osagie. "There wasn't a gap there. A similar thing happened to me in the trials and that's why I had a problem with my hamstring as I got caught a couple of times then."

    The stewards don't agree. Osagie is thrown out of the competition.

  32. Day six round-up

    I don't believe it

    Greg Rutherford

    Nothing was going to come between Commonwealth and Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford and his fans in Glasgow - not even the stewards!

    Rutherford went as far as dodging the best efforts of an official to usher him away in his attempts to "give back a little bit" back to supporters by signing autographs and posing for photos with them after qualifying for the final.

    Among the lucky ones to secure a selfie with him after he had clinched his latest gold was Kirsty Anderson: "Gold for our boy, well deserved #gregrutherford #2014athletics #teamengland"

    Commonwelfies

    Ian Thorpe and Chris Hoy

    What do you get when you cross the Commonwealth Games with a selfie? The answer, of course, is the #commonwelfie - the social media craze that swept Glasgow.

    Perhaps the best of all was delivered by none other than Sir Chris Hoy who teamed up with fellow Commonwealth and Olympic great Ian Thorpe to produce the king of #commonwelfies: "Thanks to @IanThorpe and @Mel_Mclaughlin for having me on your show, great to meet you both! #commonwelfie"

    It was an eventful stay in his native Scotland in the selfie-stakes for Hoy after he and his wife Sarra embarked on an eventful taxi journey: "Stopped at a set of traffic lights and a pedestrian opened the door jumped in and took a selfie."

    BBC Radio 5 live's John Murray asked Victoria about what Kylie is wearing as she struts her stuff at Hampden...

    "I would say its a basque - a corset or a basque, I'm not sure how to differentiate between the two. It's a bit saucy, isn't it?"

  35. Day six round-up

    Gymnastics

    We mentioned the rise of Claudia Fragapane. Well day six was the start of an incredible Commonwealth Games for her.

    Ruby Harrold, Hannah Whelan, Kelly Sim, Rebecca Downie and Claudia Fragapane of England

    England's women emulated the achievement of their male team-mates by winning gold in the gymnastics team final at the Hydro Arena.

    Rebecca Downie, Fragapane, Ruby Harrold, Hannah Whelan and Kelly Simm held off Australia to win, with Wales putting in a superb display for bronze.

    There was also team gold for England as Louis Smith, Sam Oldham, Kristian Thomas, Max Whitlock and Nile Wilson won the men's title, but Oldham had to go for an MRI scan after falling heavily on his ankle midway through the competition.

She also won bronze medals in the 100m freestyle and 100m butterfly finals.

  37. Glasgow's 'standout' Games

    Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive Mike Hooper has praised Glasgow 2014 as the "standout Games" in the movement's 84-year history.

    "With the great spread of nations winning medals, the quality of performance from the athletes, the extraordinary success of the home nation, the wonderful crowd support and venues, the superb planning and management by the organising committee and that of the Games' partners, the buzz in the city, the friendliness, a legacy plan in place and the wonderful work of the Clyde-siders, these have been great Games," Hooper said.

    "And in my view, they are the standout Games in the history of the movement."

  38. So that's that

    Before Kylie took to the stage, Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex was given a chance to address the crowd. This is what he said: "I call on all the athletes from the countries and territories of the Commonwealth to come together in Gold Coast, Queensland to celebrate the 21st Commonwealth Games in four years' time.

    "Until then, I proclaim the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games closed."

    Men's 100m finish

    Kemar Bailey-Cole came arrowing through the centre of the field from the halfway point to win the showpiece event, the men's 100m. A clear winner, but the eye was drawn to the battle behind him where a stooping Adam Gemili snatched second for England as a perfect response to Michael Johnson's criticism from the previous day.

    Jazz Carlin, 23, punches the air as she realises she is Commonwealth champion. New Zealand's Lauren Boyle got silver while Canada's Brittany Maclean was third. It had been a quiet opening four days for Wales, but the Welsh dragon was roaring on day five. Carlin's time was a Games record 8.18.11.

    Elsewhere, Ollie Hynd completed a clean sweep of titles in the SM8 200m category with a superb victory to win England's first Para-swimming gold of Glasgow 2014.

    The 19-year-old who is the Paralympic, World and European champion in the event, clocked two minutes 22.86 seconds.

    Sophie Taylor clinched another gold in the pool for England as the 18-year-old produced a strong finish to win the 100m breaststroke final.

    With all of this talk of Australia, let's highlight two of their best performers - and they came from the same family.

    Cate and Bronte Campbell won eight medals between them, with Cate collecting three golds, one more than sister Bronte.

    In the women's 100m freestyle final on Monday, Cate won gold and Bronte claimed silver. But there was no animosity or jealousy.

    Instead the siblings were screaming in celebration together and holding hands at the end. Definitely one for the Campbell family album.

  50. Pearson extends an invitation

    Back at Hampden Park... Australia's Sally Pearson, reigning women's Commonwealth 100m hurdles champion says: "The Gold Coast is where I live and train and in 2018 it will provide athletes and spectators with world-class sporting and recreational facilities.

    "Set against the spectacular backdrop of the Gold Coast and Queensland, friends will be made, records will be broken so come on down. It's where Australia shines."

    Scotland's Charlie Flynn, a 20-year-old postman, won boxing gold in the lightweight category and was in exuberant form afterwards.

    Laura Weightman won silver in the 1500m, and her mum told BBC Radio 5 live her athlete daughter is more than a bit partial to battered sausage and chips.

    Lynsey Sharp's silver in the 800m was one of the most emotional moments of the games, and she revealed how surgery, plus sickness the night before the final were not going to stop her.

    "Here in Glasgow the sun is setting on these games. But 16,000 kilometres away on the other side of the world, the sun is rising on one of the world's most beautiful coastlines. It's a place where you can feel the sun on your face and the breeze at your back, where the sounds of the ocean and the scent of the rainforest merge.

    "A city of sandcastles and skyscrapers, where the surf meets the sky you'll find the Gold Coast, Queensland."

    To be fair, it does sound great.

  57. Everyone loves the Gold Coast

    The tourist board for the Gold Coast must be loving what is going on at the moment. A host of residents have appeared, one by one, saying how much they love their home.

    The line that gets me is 'they have 300 days of sunshine'. That's just showing off. Glasgow had about three sunny days during the event.

    I don't believe it

    Australia to Scotland is an awful long way. If you have travelled from down under then you want to put in a good showing. What you definitely don't want to do, is what 20-year-old Jake Stein did.

    Jake Stein

    Two false starts in the first event of the decathlon, the 100m, saw him disqualified from that race, therefore scoring no points and ending his medal hopes before the first starting gun has been fired.

    He was angry at himself and didn't know what to do. He stomped around at the back of the track, sat down in the seats with his head in his hands and then had to go back to his starting blocks when he was formally shown the red card.

  66. Could Wales host a future Games?

    Baroness Grey-Thompson

    "I think Wales would bid, the logical thing would be a bid from Cardiff but it would have to a wider bid, a south Wales effort including Swansea and Newport. It could be done, but it would be challenging to find the money."

    BBC Sport's Ollie Williams pulled together a fascinating collection of stories from all 71 nations and territories at the Games.

    The first member of the #71club was Malaysia's track cyclist Mohd Azizulhasni Awang, who describes himself as "the pocket rocket man."

    The last was Scotland's mountain biker Kerry MacPhee, who says her sporting talent came from herding sheep as a child on the Outer Hebrides island of South Uist.

    South Africa - rugby sevens

    South Africa

    New Zealand at rugby sevens was like the Brazilian football team of the early 1970s, or the West Indies cricket side later in the same decade - absolutely unbeatable.

    The All Blacks had won the Commonwealth Games gold medal in each of the four times it had been held previously. But this was not their year as they lost 17-12 to South Africa in the final.

  69. Day four round-up

    Quote of the Day

    BBC pundit Michael Johnson was not overly impressed after England's Adam Gemili is the fastest qualifier to move into the final of the men's 100m final.

    "When he runs well, I'd like to see him look a little more like he expects that, not like, 'Oh my god, that was really great,'" says Johnson.

  70. Post update

    Right, the Prince has finished. So let's continue our look back at the highlights. We had reached day four.

  71. 'They have been the peoples' Games

    Commonwealth Games Federation president HRH Prince Imran: "The Commonwealth Games are known as the friendly games. These have been more than that. They have truly been the peoples' Games. Thank you Clyde-siders you have been truly amazing."

    Chris McLaughlin

    "This a man who knows how to work a crowd, but I wouldn't necessarily disagree with him!"

  73. 'The best Games ever'

    His Royal Highness Prince Imran, the president of the Commonwealth Games, knows how to work a crowd. "Glasgow, it is a job well done," says the prince, which is received by huge cheers from the Hampden Park crowd.

    "You have delivered the best Games ever," he says, before adding the Glasgow slogan, "Pure, dead brilliant."

    Any more of this and he will be carried out on someone's shoulders. The Prince is having a better closing ceremony than opening one, after he struggled to open the Queen's Baton with Her Majesty the Queen watching on.

  74. Day four round-up

    Shooting

    England's Charlotte Kerwood

    England's Charlotte Kerwood won her second gold in the double trap event, adding to her victory the last time the discipline was in the Commonwealth Games in 2006.

    "It feels amazing," she said. "The Commonwealth Games seem to like me and it's a good event to come to. I was relaxed and laughing because I didn't realise that I was five targets ahead and started thinking there was no pressure."

    Countryman Steven Scott then won gold in the men's event.

  75. Another accolade for Jones

    Frankie Jones receives her award

    Frankie Jones's Commonwealth Games has just got even better as she receives the David Dixon Award, handed out to mark one competitor's contribution to her team and a spirit of fair play.

    She won six medals, including one gold, in the rhythmic gymnastics events.

  76. Day four round-up

    Track cycling

    The Commonwealth Games featured a host of Para-sports in Glasgow. Among those celebrating were England's Sophie Thornhill and pilot Helen Scott, who won tandem time trial gold medals.

    Elsewhere on the track on day four, England's Laura Trott won gold in the women's points race at the Commonwealth Games despite being laid low with a kidney infection.

  78. Day four round-up

    Track cycling

    Speaking of incredible stories, Isle of Man cyclist Jonny Bellis has been through a lot, but unfortunately he was denied the opportunity of extending that story as he withdrew from the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow because of a knee injury.

    The 25-year-old was selected to compete in the points and scratch races on the track. He tweeted: "Feel like I have let so many people down, but it is out of my control. I am really disappointed."

    Jonny Bellis

    But Bellis's story is an incredible one. He spent a month in a coma after being knocked from a scooter while training abroad in 2009. Doctors feared he would be paralysed, he suffered a stroke and his weight plummeted, but 10 months later he was back racing.

    But there was to be no Hollywood ending for the Manxman.

  79. Day four round-up

    Athletics

    We have seen some great stories during this year's Commonwealth Games. One of the best has come from England's Steven Way, who claimed a 10th-place finish in the men's marathon.

    Seven years ago he could never have imagined that he would be in this position. Weighing more than 16 stone and smoking 20 cigarettes a day, Way decided to change his life.

    Steven Way

    Fast forward to 2014 and Way, now 40, runs up to 140 miles in training each week around his day job in a bank. At one moment he led the race, which was eventually won by Australia's Michael Shelley.

    "It's important for the Paralympic movement, we need to make sure we do more over the next four years before the Gold Coast Games, especially for our female athletes."

  83. Here come the bagpipes

    I can't believe it has taken us 15 minutes to hear our first bagpipes being played. And there are hundreds of them. It is a sea of drummers, bagpipers and military officials. Numerous athletes are desperate to get their pictures of the marching band.

    Track cycling

    Scotland enjoyed a cycling love-in at the Games as they won a total of five medals in the velodrome.

    Chris Pritchard proposes to his partner

    And the romance extended beyond the track thanks to Chris Pritchard.

    The Scot, 31, got off his bike at the end of the keirin event and climbed into the crowd to propose to girlfriend Amanda Ball.

    The gesture stunned the watching crowd, if perhaps not Amanda herself, who thankfully said "yes."

    "I have been nagging for long enough," she said. "The ring is just like the one I took a picture of and left on the iPad." Lovely.

  86. 'A lot of love'

    There's a lot of love in Hampden Park tonight. And that's not the only time that has been seen at this Commonwealth Games.

    From 60-year-old Mick Gault, to Scotland's 13-year-old swimmer Erraid Davies, whowon bronze in the SB9 100m breaststroke final.

    Erraid Davies

    The Shetlander is Scotland's youngest ever competitor and was the youngest competing in this Commonwealth Games.

    Elsewhere in the pool, Fran Halsall won her second gold of these Games and 10th Commonwealth medal overall, as she won the 50m butterfly after Siobhan-Marie O'Connor, 18, had won the 200m individual medley.

    Scotland's men's 4x200m freestyle team won silver, while Hannah Miley and England's Liam Tancock both added bronze medals to their medal tally.

  89. Day three round-up

    The beauty of the Commonwealth Games is that people of all ages could compete.

    England's Mick Gault won bronze in the 10m air pistol event to win a record-equalling 18th Commonwealth Games medal.

    The 60-year-old from Norfolk retired through illness after Delhi 2010 but came back to try and match the mark set by Australian shooter Phillip Adams, which he achieved in Glasgow. Gault later announced his retirement from the sport later in the week.

  90. 'We're going to do some singing'

    Deacon Blue

    "We're going to do some singing tonight," says the lead singer of Deacon Blue. The Glasgow crowd scream extremely loudly. I had a feeling they would've done so any way.

    A lively start to the closing ceremony and there are smiles all around, as the athletes continue to stream into the arena waving to loved ones.

    Also coming in are 200 members of the Glasgow emergency services, who are also given the chance to enjoy the moment and wave to friends and family.

    It is closing ceremony time. We know we will be seeing Kylie Minogue, Deacon Blue and Lulu. What else will Glasgow have in store?

  95. Triathlon

    Triathlon team gold medallist Jonny Brownlee revealed it was a spur of the moment decision by his brother and fellow gold medallist Alistair for them to attend the closing ceremony.

    He tells BBC Sport: "Alistair came for a run and knocked on my front door. He said we should come up for the ceremony. That was only about five hours ago."

    English long jumper Greg Rutherford was not overly impressed with some noisy neighbours in the athletes' village. He said: "Our captain is going to have a word and I think it will generally be spoken about. It's not ideal. We'll ask them politely if they can keep it down."

    Rutherford's time in Glasgow would soon get a lot more enjoyable.

  98. Day three round-up

    Swimming

    England's Fran Halsall was the fastest qualifier going into the final of the women's 50m freestyle, and she carried that form into the final to take the gold medal. She recorded the fastest time of the year and a new Commonwealth Games record of 23.96 seconds.

  101. 'Everyone is so, so proud'

    Burton has been speaking on BBC One. He says: "It has been nerves, excitement, pride. That has been the over-riding emotion. Everyone is so, so proud to be part of the most successful Scottish Commonwealth Games team ever."

  102. Day three round-up

    Judo

    There was a gold in the judo for Scotland's Euan Burton, who had carried his country's flag during the opening ceremony, as he claimed victory in the under 100kg category. His success came just after wife Gemma Gibbons, representing England, won a silver in her event.

    GEmma Gibbons

    Gibbons said on Twitter: "The most fantastic and amazing husband who went one better and brought home the gold for our family! #soproud."

    But Burton was not the only Scot celebrating gold. Fellow judoka Sarah Adlington won the women's under 78kg gold and Christopher Sherrington clinched the men's 100kg title.

  103. Day three round-up

    I don't believe it

    Rebecca mentions Usain Bolt, and the fastest man in the world arrived in town on day three - and it was chaos.

    His press conference saw him fielding questions on every strange subject possible from whether he had a kilt to what he thought of the situation in the Middle East and whether he could pose for a 'selfie' later in the day.

    An interview in the Times alleging that he had been less than favourable about the Commonwealth Games then caused controversy, although Bolt denied those allegations, saying the event was great, apart from the rainy, cold weather in Scotland.

    "I'm just really excited and hoping that I don't trip over!"

    Team England chef de mission Jan Paterson added: "Kate has brought home four medals from four Commonwealth Games, she is a fantastic role model for the team and it was a team vote that decided she would be the flag bearer."

    Richardson-Walsh will be in action later tonight. The closing ceremony begins at 21:00 BST.

    We don't know what Alex Salmond thought of his fellow countryman Gavin Rumgay, but it certainly made the rest of us laugh.

    Nine-time national table tennis champion Gavin Rumgay decided to give himself a 'wedgie' and then dance around the table like the third member of The Proclaimers after fighting back from two games down to beat Canada's Pierre-Luc Theriault.

    Scotland's Gavin Rumgay

    While the home crowd lapped up the 29-year-old's antics, the officials were not as amused - reprimanding him like a naughty schoolboy.

    "I'm just in the zone and it happened. I got a warning and a yellow, but it's a funny yellow card," he said.

    Frankie Jones bowed out on a high, claiming a gold and five silver medals in her final competition before retirement. The Welsh rhythmic gymnast isn't done with the Commonwealth Games, however.

    The 23-year-old spoke to the BBC at Hampden Park before the closing ceremony: "It's been an incredible experience, the best thing I've done in my sporting career. It's the last competition for me as an athlete but I hope to be involved in future Commonwealth Games as a coach."

    Apparently he had been watching Braveheart staring Mel Gibson a little bit too closely just before his final.

    It became one of the images of the Games. A wide-eyed open mouthed Ross Murdoch just did not know how to react after he defeated fellow Scot Michael Jamieson, an Olympic silver medallist and strong favourite, in the men's 200m breaststroke.

    "I always dreamt I could do something like that in front of home crowd," said Murdoch. "I really thought I could challenge to be on the podium and I'm pleased to have done it. It's mind-blowing.

    "Michael Jamieson is a hero to me, and someone I looked up to after the Olympic Games."

    Women's squash world champion Laura Massaro on BBC Radio 5 live: "The English look a little tentative right now. The nerves are showing and Palmer is looking a bit tired. However, there is no way he is going to give up this fight for the gold."

    Olympic cycling champion and BBC Sport summariser

    "All of these medals and successes are stacking up for Geraint Thomas. People like him - the real bike riders - will only fully take this in at the end of their careers. He has so many achievements - and I don't think he has finished yet."

    Earlier (16:11), we mentioned that Edmonton and Durban are battling to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

    Gideon Sam, president of South Africa Olympic committee and part of the Durban bid team, tells BBC World Service: "There is no doubt that it is Africa's time and many people feel that.

    "Let the Commonwealth Games family all get a change to stage the games. We are part of the Commonwealth and want them to be our guests for the first time. We have the infrastructure to deliver. This is Africa's time. This is Durban's time."

    A decision on who hosts the 2022 competition will be made in September 2015.

    Peter Kennaugh

    "Pete Kennaugh's early move was possibly the best move of the Games. He showed so much determination and grit.

    "It's not an easy thing to do, especially in the conditions today, and it breaks my heart when you put so much effort into it and the others catch you up. I think he will have future success. He gave everything he could."

    Kennaugh's move, which saw him sprint clear early on in the men's road race before being caught at about the 120km mark, did not lead to a medal as he finished eighth in the men's road race.

    Geraint Thomas

    More from Commonwealth Games champion Geraint Thomas on BBC One. "I think Pete (Kennaugh) wanted a few of us to come with him. I was going to go but my water bottle came loose and by the time I had secured it he was gone. Unfortunately for him he was then on his own. He had bought his ticket by then and he just had to commit.

    "Winning is unbelievable. I never expected it. Coming off the tour I was tired at end of that. I thought it would be a massive challenge to get a result here but the motivation was there.

    "I was buzzing to compete for Team Wales. I just got stuck in and it couldn't have got any better. Carrying the flag tonight will be a massive honour. That is just as good as winning a race and that means a lot to me and my family."

    Men's road race

    England's Scott Thwaites, bronze medallist in the road race, on BBC One says: "The conditions were unbelievable. At times you could barely see. It was still a great race, however, and a great experience.

    "Geraint was so strong I always knew that (his breakaway) was coming. It was just a matter of time before he went for the gold medal.

    "My legs were shot at the end, Jack (Bauer) is a super-strong guy but he just got me in the end. I'm a little bit disappointed (not to have got second) but I'm just happy to be on the podium."
