England's Adam Gemili brought the Hampden Park crowd to their feet with a stunning silver medal in the men's 100m at the 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, his first major championship medal.
Gemili, a former world junior champion, arrived in the final with the second fastest qualifying time and then went on to better that with a 10.10 seconds, finishing behind eventual winner, Kemar Bailey-Cole from Jamaica, who clocked 10 seconds dead.
Another Jamaican, Nickel Ashmeade, completed the podium, edging Antoine Adams of St Kitts and Nevis to the bronze.
Gemili, just 20-years of age, has shown some real promise this season with a brace of bronze medals in the Diamond League, and his silver in Glasgow was a clear indication of what the future has in store for the talented Londoner.
The silver medalist is a sub 20 second sprinter in his preferred event the 200m, an event he has chosen to compete in the up and coming European Championships, however a string of consistent performances this season have suggested a personal best or perhaps even a sub 10 second run in the blue ribband event is not far off.
Gemili was clearly stunned by his performance and told the media after the event: "My first time representing England - I'm so happy. That's something I'm never going to forget in my life.
"It's not about times, it's about position. The times will eventually come. This is just a stepping-stone for the European Championships and then the Olympics in Rio."
Gemili also took time out to thank his fans and Games officials through his social media page, saying: "A special thanks to everyone who has supported me and got me to where I am, and all the volunteers here in Glasgow!"

Unfortunately for Jamaica there was no double joy as Nigeria's Blessing Okagbare produced a powerful performance to claim gold in the women's 100m in a new Games record of 10.85sec.
The Nigerian who is also aiming for gold in the 200m and long jump, finished ahead of Jamaica's Veronica Campbell-Brown and Kerron Stewart took silver and bronze at Hampden Park in 11.03 and 11.07sec respectively.
