Sachin Tendulkar and Bollywood music provided the Indian connect as Scotland ushered in the 20th Commonwealth Games with a dazzling and colourful opening ceremony which celebrating its culture and heritage to set the ball rolling for the 11-day sporting extravaganza.

Welcoming over 4500 athletes from 71 Commonwealth nations, the ceremony had its share of sombre moments when silence was observed for the 298 victims of the Malaysian Airlines flight which was shot down over Ukraine last week.

A surprisingly subdued Glasgow suddenly sprang to life and exuberance with a three-hour mesmerising show of light and sound and colourful hues which the organisers claimed was watched by more than one billion people.

As per convention, the head of Commonwealth countries Queen Elizabeth II declared the Games Open.

"It is my greatest pleasure to declare the 20th Commonwealth Games open" said Her Majesty under a blue Glasgow sky to signal Scotland's third CWG and first after 1986 when Duke of Edinburgh played host.
