Bolt the toast of Glasgow


Usain Bolt ended a week of controversy by finally making his Commonwealth Games debut at a packed Hampden Park last night.

Six days after arriving in Glasgow to great fanfare the world's fastest man took to the track to run the anchor leg for Jamaica in the heats of the 4x100m relay.

His name was greeted with a huge cheer, despite his alleged slur, denied by the man himself, on his Games experience. The six-time Olympic champion responded by sauntering down the home straight to put his team safely into the final in first place.

Bolt had to take to Twitter on Wednesday to deny a report which quoted him saying the Games were "a bit s**t".
