Glasgow Games Hailed as Best Ever in Rousing Closing Ceremony

In a sporting festival recognised for the warmth of its welcome, the ceremony at Hampden Park fittingly celebrated the event loudly and proudly, much like the spectators have done at each sporting venue.

“The Commonwealth Games are known as the Friendly Games. Glasgow has succeeded in making them even more than that,” Prince Imran told the rejoicing crowd.

“These have truly been the people’s Games. Scotland, you have welcomed the athletes of the Commonwealth and have contributed to them realising their dreams on one of the world’s great sporting stages.

“Scotland, and Glasgow, you really have delivered in every aspect the best Games ever. Glasgow you were pure, dead brilliant.”
