England's Gemili claims men's 100m silver

England's Adam Gemili took Commonwealth Games 100m silver behind Jamaica's Kemar Bailey-Cole to seal his first senior international medal in style.

Gemili, in his less favoured sprint event, got out of his blocks well before the much fancied Bailey-Cole, 22, overcame his own sluggish start to come through for gold in 10 seconds flat.

Bailey-Cole's fellow Jamaican Nickel Ashmeade took bronze at Hampden Park, but it was the 20-year-old Gemili who celebrated with the most glee as his 10.10secs on a cool Glasgow evening put him on a senior podium for the first time.

Gemili has focused more on the 200m this season and will run over the longer distance at next month's European Championships in Zurich.

But in front of a noisy capacity crowd, which offered him tremendous support, he proved his decision to take on the shorter event entirely justified.
