Seven ways in which the Commonwealth Games are a bit s***
Usain Bolt denies calling the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow 'a bit s***' – but maybe they are
Usain Bolt, the world’s fastest man, has apparently described the Commonwealth Games as "a bit s***".
Asked if he was enjoying himself in Glasgow, the sprinter replied, "Not really," The Times reports. "The Olympics were better," he added
Although he has now denied ever making the comments, here are seven reasons he may have been right:

Squash, lawn bowls and mountain biking? These are not serious sports.

The Opening Ceremony
Dancing tea cakes. Need we say more?
Rod Stewart and Susan Boyle
Oh wait, yes we do. Rod Stewart and Susan Boyle. Och.
