As 11 days of incredible sporting moments come to an end, we take a look at the best moments from the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

There's been tears, laughter and a LOT of lycra, but exactly what was it about #Glasgow2014 that really caught our attention. Take five and grab yourself a bucket of cold water as we take a look at the best moments from the Scottish knees-up.

1. Let's kick things off with Usain Bolt showing the Glasgow crowd just how well he can dance like Cheryl. #CrazyStupidLove

8. Our GB teams are WAAAAAAAAY better at the Commonwealth Games sports than they are at the World Cup. We were actually in it until the end! Just look at the final Medal Table...

9. Tea cakes in Scotland are MASSIVE! Surely you can't finish one of those bad boys on your own? A moment on the lips...

10. She said YES! Romance certainly isn't dead and to prove it here's Scottish Cyclist Chris Pritchard proposing to his partner literally moments after competing...

Awww, what a teary moment. We're off to buy a hat.

11. Back to the opening ceremony and the Loch Ness monster looks WAY nicer than it sounds in stories. Still, nice to know they've finally found it after all this time...
