The 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow drew to a close at the weekend, and seems to have been a success – regardless of what a certain Jamaican sprinter may or may not have said.

They say the people who organised this had an eighth of Danny Boyle’s budget. I reckon they had an eighth of skunk. #openingceremony
