Olympic silver medallist Lizzie Armitstead is full of confidence as she looks to win gold in the women's cycling road race, which starts at 8am.

And time trial gold medallist Alex Dowsett is part of a six-strong English team in the men's road race at noon, with David Millar leading to home charge for Scotland.

"I like the Aussies' confidence in saying they have the best team but I'm not sure it's well-founded confidence - they have a very strong team but I think our team is equally strong," said Armitstead.

"There's a fair few golds in our team - we have Olympic champions and Emma Pooley has a massive pedigree, so I have massive confidence in our team."

England's men's hockey team take on New Zealand for the bronze medal at the Glasgow National Hockey Centre (10am) an there's an all-English final in the badminton mixed doubles (10am) as Chris and Gabby Adcock take on Chris Langridge and Heather Olver for gold.
