Dartford athlete Adam Gemili has won silver at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this evening.
The former Dartford Grammar School for Boys pupil came second in the 100m after Jamaican Kemar Bailey-Cole, beating Nickel Ashmeade by 0.02 seconds.
After seeing his time on the big screen Gemili dropped to his knees in front of a rapturous audience at Hampden Park.
He told BBC Sport: "This is my first senior medal. I'm speechless. There's so much preparation that goes into running 10 seconds - my team put a lot of work in behind the scenes."
