Scotland’s Laura Muir won the Commonwealth 1500m crown with an unflinching display that left her rivals in her wake.

The 29-year-old turned off the pressure with 500 meters to go and, despite the best efforts of Northern Ireland’s Ciara Mageean, no one could live with her.

Muir finished in four minutes 2.76 seconds to add to her bronze in the 800m and win a 12th Scottish Games title.

Mageean took silver ahead of Australia’s Abbey Caldwell.

Jemma Reekie, Muir’s training partner, friend and one-time flat mate, finished fifth but was the first to congratulate her team-mate on her victory.

More to come.
