Coverage runs daily from midnight until 8pm across BBC One and BBC Two for the 11-day duration of the Commonwealth Games, featuring a regular evening highlights show at 6.30pm on BBC Two.

BBC Four will then show a further hour of Games action from 8pm.

Away from track and field, other sporting greats providing expert analysis will include Sir Chris Hoy and Chris Boardman on the velodrome action, Rebecca Adlington and Mark Foster poolside and Beth Tweddle and Craig Heap at the gymnastics.
