LIVE - COMMONWEALTH GAMES DAY NINE

Rugby Sevens

Highlights of the early morning quarter finals followed by live coverage of the semi-finals at 0958 and 1020.

New Zealand are chasing a fourth consecutive Commonwealth title but England and Sevens World Series champions Samoa are among those hoping to make a big impression today.

Diving

One of the most spectacular of the diving events, the 10m Synchro requires perfect timing and agility to create what is often breath-taking symmetry. England's hopes rest with teenagers Tom Daley and Max Brick - the pair will be looking for better luck than they had at the European Championships in Budapest in August, when Daley was forced to withdraw with a tricep injury.

Also action from the first men's Hockey semi-final and the first Netball semi-final.

BBC One 1130-1700

Rugby Sevens

Live coverage of the climax of the competition.

The 2006 final provided one of the highlights of the Commonwealth Games, with New Zealand seeing off England 29-21 in front of 50,000 fans in Melbourne. The All Blacks have dominated rugby sevens since it made its debut at the Commonwealth Games in 1998, winning all three gold medals. Will there be a change of guard this afternoon?

Also news of the second Netball semi-final.

Athletics

Andy Baddeley goes for gold in the men's 1500m, although world leader Silas Kiplagat of Kenya will start as favourite.The sprint relay finals also take place, with England hopeful of medalling in both the men's and women's events.

Scottish duo Steph Twell and Freya Murray line up in a competitive looking 5000m, headed by Kenyan world champion Vivian Cheruiyot.

The curtain comes down on another Commonwealth Games athletic programme with the traditional 4x400m relay final for both men and women.

Badminton

It's semi-finals day at the Siri Fort Sports Complex as we get to the business end of the individual events in the Badminton. The whole of the host nation will be behind superstar Saina Nehwal, who is aiming to become India's first female Commonwealth badminton champion.

England fans will be hoping Nathan Robertson is still in the doubles events - the Nottingham shuttler is the defending champion in the mixed doubles but is playing with a new face, Jenny Wallwork, in Delhi after the retirement of long-time partner Gail Emms.
