  1. 04:46 Archery  

    So, regrettably it's the last day of the archery competition with two golds up for grabs, in the men's and women's individual recurve events. Don't expect any draws, though. It's very uncommon for two archers to have the same score - everyone knows that bow ties went out of style years ago. Badum tish.

  2. 04:41 Alert GET INVOLVED  

    You'd have to be a cruel mistress to leave me alone at this time of the night, wouldn't you? Alone with my thoughts... anyway, drop me a line, COME ON!! Send us a text (with 'DELHI' before the message) to 81111 (UK) and +44 7786200666 (worldwide), and blast me a Tweet @Stevo_football. Unlike the road racers, I ain't going anywhere fast.

    From EpicallyFailing: "Morning again Stevo. Looking forward to today's viewing, especially Cav vs Renshaw (his pro team-mate) in the road race."

  4. 04:33 Cycling  

    They've only gone and kicked off in the women's road race cycling, haven't they? Welsh rider Nicole Cooke is aiming to regain the title she won as a 19-year-old in 2002 and her rivals include England's Emma Pooley, Lizzie Armistead and Sharon Laws. Scotland, Northern Ireland and Guernsey also have representation in the 112km race.

  5. 04:27 Commentary WHAT'S GOING ON THIS MORNING  

    Involved in the early action today, there's some archery (it's the last day), some badminton singles, the women's 112km road race in the cycling, a bit of diving, the men's triples semis in the lawn bowls, England v Papua New Guinea in the netball, a touch of shooting, some singles table-tennis and a dash of wrestling. Should keep us occupied, then.

  6. 04:21 Medal alert  

    Just the 30 gold medals available today, on what is destined to be forever known as Day Seven of the 2010 Commonwealth Games. The participating sports are archery, athletics, badminton, boxing, cycling, diving, hockey, lawn bowls, netball, shooting, squash, table-tennis, tennis, weightlifting and wrestling. Surely at least one of those floats your boat?

    On Twitter: "Swimming is over, now time to get my diving head on. @steparry2 and I will be doing our best to cover the action for BBC 5live/extra."

  8. 04:11 Commentary  

    You want to know my choice of SPOTY? Easy, that - got to be the one and only Graeme McDowell, US Open champion and Ryder Cup hero. LEGEND.

  9. 04:09 Commentary  

    I mean, let's face it - unless Stuart Broad scores 244 not out and takes match figures of 19-64 in the first Ashes Test against Australia, the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year award is very much up for grabs. Talking of which, Mark Cavendish might just be in the mixer for that gong too - the Isle of Man legend is definitely in the shape-up for the men's road race and that takes place this morning at the Commonwealth Games. (What a link that was, by the way)

  10. 04:03 Alert  

    There might have been a dearth of world-class stars when the Commonwealth Games started in Delhi, but the beauty of sport is that new heroes crop up all the time. Step forward Scotland swimmer Hannah Miley and English heptathlete Louise Hazel, gold medalists the pair of them. Roll on London 2012.

BBC One 1000-1200


Highlights of the Women's Road Race which took place overnight plus live coverage of the Men's Road Race.

The men's Road Race, takes place over a 167km course, taking in some of Delhi's famous landmarks, such as India Gate, along the way. Mark Cavendish from the Isle of Man and Welsh rider Geraint Thomas both made waves in this year's Tour de France and will be looking to cap excellent seasons with the Commonwealth title. Also riding will be Scotland's David Millar along with Australian Mathew Hayman, who is the defending champion.

There will also be highlights of the women's event in which Olympic Road Race champion Nicole Cooke was attempting to win the Commonwealth title, no easy task in an event which favours riders who can call on the support of team-mates to help them plot their way through the race. Welsh star Cooke took bronze in Melbourne four years ago when Natalie Bates, backed by a strong Australian team, claimed gold. England also had high hopes of success in Delhi, with the likes of Emma Pooley, Lizzie Armitstead and Sharon Laws in their team.

BBC Two 1200-1715


Live coverage of the concluding stages of the men's road race. Australian Mathew Hayman upstaged the favourites four years ago in Melbourne - who will be claiming the spoils in Delhi today?


The Diving Competition gets under way.

Today's three finals include the Men's 1m Springboard in which Australia's Matthew Mitcham, who won bronze at the World Championships in Rome last year, will be among the favourites.


World 800m champion Caster Semenya of South Africa was expected to challenge for gold, but will miss the Games because of a back injury; the 19-year-old underwent an MRI scan, which confirmed the problem. Both Kenya's Janeth Jepkosgei and Jamaica's Kenia Sinclair have run faster than Semenya this year and the race is shaping up to be one of the most competitive on the track in Delhi.

The cream of the Caribbean's sprinters are expected to dominate the men's and women's 200m finals, while Welshman Dai Greene is favourite to add the Commonwealth title to his European gold.

Also, Tennis: - Men's Singles Final, Bowls, Boxing and Weightlifting
