News: Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games begin

The XX Commonwealth Games officially began last night with a spectacular opening ceremony at Celtic Park in Glasgow.


40,000 spectators watched the celebrations live, which included performances from Scottish stars such as Rod Stewart, Susan Boyle and Amy McDonald, and a range of Scottish clich├ęs – including dancing Tunnock’s teacakes, a giant Loch Ness monster inflatable and a replica of Glasgow’s Duke of Wellington statue.
