The first person in the crowd to congratulate Laura Weightman after her stunning silver medal performance in the Commonwealth Games 1500m final was mum Diana.

A deliriously happy Laura spotted her mum among the 40,000 spectators in Hampden Park last night and the pair shared an emotional embrace seen by millions on TV.

The touching moment came at the end of a fantastic race in which the tenacious Morpeth Harrier from Lesbury, Northumberland, grabbed second place behind Kenyan Faith Kibiegon, the 2012 world junior champion.
