The new Commonwealth Games sprint champion has said that food during London 2012 was superior to what's on offer at Glasgow 2014.

Jamaican Kemar Bailey-Cole won gold in the men's 100m sprint but is unlikely to be celebrating with a Scottish meal.

Asked how the food in Glasgow compared with that on offer at London 2012, he said: "I can't compare. London was really different food. It was way better than this. It could do with some more seasoning."
