A giant mural of Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt in Parkhead is the latest artistic creation welcoming the Games to Glasgow.
And one local woman got into the spirit of things by pretending to give the sprinter a friendly Glasgow hug.
Bolt said yesterday he is ready to put in a good showing in the sprint relay at the Commonwealth Games after recovering from foot surgery and a hamstring injury.
The Jamaican, who missed nine weeks of training after surgery on his left foot in March, said he is back in sub-10 second shape after training twice a day to for the Glasgow Games.
He said: "It's been rough, but I know what it takes to get back."
