  6. Watch: Wednesday's best moments

    Right anyone fancy a quick recap of some of Wednesday's best bits?

  7. Gold medal - Wales - Aled Sion Davies

    Men’s discus F42-44/61-64 final

    Paralympic legend Aled Sion Davies completes the gold medal set by becoming Commonwealth Games champion for the first time.

    Davies wins the F42-44/61-64 men's discus final with a throw of 51.39m.

    Davies' gold follows on from the success of fellow Wales Paralympian Olivia Breen who won the T37/38 women's 100m title.

    Fellow Welshman Harrison Walsh claims a bronze medal with Sri Lanka's Palitha Halgahawela Gedara winning silver.

    Defending champion Dan Greaves from England finishes fourth.

    Even though Greaves (54.66) and Walsh (54.76) threw further than Davies, the Welshman was still crowned champion as he produced a Commonwealth Games record.

    This was because this competition combines different para-athletic classes so the final result was based on points rather than distance.

  8. A long time coming...

    For 10 years Eilish McColgan has been chasing a major title, with just one silver medal in the European Championships to show for all that effort and pain.

    Tonight she won gold for Scotland in an emotional 10,000m, emulating mum Liz in the process.

    Just another wonderful moment from these Games already...

  9. 'It feels amazing, this competition has treated my career so well'

    Women's Commonwealth Games heptathlon gold medallist Katarina Johnson-Thompson speaking to BBC: "It feels amazing, it feels like this competition has treated my career so well. In 2018 it was my first global gold and it kickstarted my career.

    "It has been tough couple of years so hopefully this can kickstart another part of my career. It has been hard, I had moments where I didn't know if I wanted to carry on but to come out here and get the gold and prove to myself that pushing through was worth it I am so happy.

    "I did that victory lap with Jessica Ennis-Hill back in 2012 and I remember seeing everyone's faces and that is when I decided to quit university and I wanted to do this professionally, because I wanted that moment and I know it is not an Olympic Games and Tokyo happened but this has just been so incredible.

    "The stadium has been packed every day and the crowd has been so amazing I am so happy I was able to put on a performance to them."

  10. 'I didn't have the best execution but I had to dig for that one'

    Women's 100m Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Daryll Neita has been speaking to BBC Sport: "Overriding emotion is that it is nice to get another medal on home soil I really didn't put the best race together today and that makes me want to get back to work right now.

    "I am in fantastic shape but I need to do better in these finals. Its fantastic I am racing the fastest woman to have ever existed and the fact I am getting closer and these women are so encouraging it's a great atmosphere to be a part of."

  14. Athletics

    Women's 100m final

    Elaine Thompson-Herah has been nursing injuries this year and was originally only named as an alternate for the 100m in Birmingham but was promotedfollowing the withdrawal of Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.

    All's well that ends well, eh?

    She is a champion, her technique is pure efficiency and grace. Elaine Thompson-Herah is an absolute champion, a two-time Olympic champion at 100m and 200m.

  16. 'Neita found enough for a bronze'

    Michael Johnson

    Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC TV

    Daryll Neita didn't get a good start again, but she wasn't able to find that same sort of acceleration that she found in the semis that led to a personal best but still found enough for bronze medal.

  17. Post update

    Women's 100m final

    Daryll Neita clocked 11.07 seconds there. Mixed emotions...?

    Had she replicated her semi-final that would have been a gold.

  18. 'There wasn't going to be any mistake from the gun'

    Women's 100m final

    Colin Jackson

    Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on BBC TV

    I don't think from the gun there was going to be any mistake she got out of the blocks so aggressively, she has company from Julien Alfred but she is so calm under this sort of pressure.

  19. Gold medal - Jamaica - Elaine Thompson-Herah

    Women's 100m final

    Double Olympic 100m champion Elaine Thompson-Herah does the business, winning in 10.95.

    Saint Lucia’s Julien Alfred takes the silver with England’s Daryll Neita in bronze.
