Commonwealth Games closing ceremony Held

(Glasgow) – The 2014 Commonwealth Games has formally closed with a spectacular ceremony at Hampden Park in Glasgow. Kylie Minogue, Lulu, Deacon Blue and more than 2,000 performers brought the curtain down on what has been praised as the “best Games ever”.
Team England topped the medals table with 174, while Scotland ended up with a record 53. Comedian Des Clarke opened the show promising to say “cheerio with the biggest party in Scotland’s history”.
Lulu, wearing a tartan scarf, then performed a rousing rendition of her first hit Shout on a huge shooting star-shaped stage in the centre of the pitch. The athletes who took part in the Games emerged from almost 700 tents dotted throughout the stadium to a thunderous Glasgow welcome from the 40,000-strong crowd.
