00:00: Lawn bowls - men's pairs medal matches. Scotland's Alex Marshall has won this event on three of the past four occasions - another victory, alongside partner Paul Foster, would give him a Scottish-record fifth Commonwealth Games title.

00:42: Weightlifting - men's 105kg. David Katoatau won Kiribati's first-ever Commonwealth medal with gold in Glasgow in 2014 and his celebratory dance made him one of the hits of the Games. Katoatau, who also uses his sport to draw attention to the climate change problems affecting his Pacific island homeland, is back to defend his title. This will be his last major event before retirement, so perhaps expect some special moves if he grabs another gold.

05:12: Weightlifting - women's +90kg. There has been an explosion of media interest in Laurel Hubbard, and not just because last year she became the first New Zealand weightlifter to win a World Championship medal. The controversy surrounds the fact 40-year-old Hubbard was born and lived as a man for more than 30 years before transitioning. Her testosterone levels are within the permitted limit but not everyone is happy about her competing.

07:45: Artistic gymnastics - men's horizontal bar final. Nile Wilson earned this title on a tie-break four years ago but the Yorkshireman has since become European champion and earned an Olympic bronze on the horizontal bar.

09:32: Table tennis - men's team gold-medal match. England have excellent pedigree in Commonwealth Games table tennis and captain Paul Drinkhall has said gold in the team event is their priority. England won silver in Glasgow four years ago and could face holders Singapore in a repeat of that final.

10:30: Squash - men's singles gold-medal match. England's Nick Matthew will bring the curtain down on a glittering career later this year and is hoping to sign off from the Commonwealth Games with a third consecutive gold medal in the singles.

10:43: Swimming - women's 800m freestyle final. Jazz Carlin was the first Welsh woman to win Commonwealth gold in the pool for 40 years when she took this title in 2014. She subsequently earned silver in this event at the Rio Olympics.

12:07: Swimming - men's 50m breaststroke final. Can anyone stop current world and European champion Adam Peaty from adding the Commonwealth title to his CV in this non-Olympic event?

12:44: Swimming - women's 100m freestyle final. A loaded line-up is likely to include Canada's Olympic gold medallist Penny Oleksiak, England's world junior champion Freya Anderson, defending Commonwealth champion Cate Campbell of Australia and her sister Bronte Campbell, the 2015 world champion.

12:50: Athletics - women's 100m final. Reigning Olympic champion Elaine Thompson of Jamaica will start as favourite but could be challenged by team-mate Christania Williams and Trinidad and Tobago's Michelle-Lee Ahye.

13:15: Athletics - men's 100m final. Retired sprint king Usain Bolt is expected to be watching from the stands as his former training partner and 2011 world champion Yohan Blake attempts to maintain Jamaica's dominance in this event. Blake has revealed Bolt told him there are "going to be problems" if he doesn't win. No pressure, then. England's Adam Gemili won silver in this event four years ago in Glasgow.
