Britain's most successful Olympian Sir Chris Hoy told ITV News the Commonwealth Games holds "some of the most memorable moments" in his career as the Glasgow 2014 baton started its trip around the world.
The retired cyclist said he wanted to compete in the 2014 Games in front of his home crowd but "eventually the body gives up".
He added: "For me, some of the most memorable moments in my career came at a Commonwealth Games, my first ever individual gold medal came in 2002 in Manchester and I also won a gold medal in Melbourne in 2006 and these were real highlights of my career."
