Selfies delay Commonwealth Games opening ceremony by 45 minutes


So, obviously, thousands of athletes involved in the Glasgow Opening Ceremony last night captured the moment by taking a selfie – or two.

Competitors from around the world posted various portraits of themselves and their team mates on social media during the £20million celebration.

The competitors, who were chaperoned by Scottish Highland Terriers, took their time to soak up the atmosphere as they made their way around the city’s Celtic Stadium – capturing as much of it as possible on their smart phones.

So perhaps it is no coincidence the ceremony overran by about 45 minutes – finishing well past the event curfew enforced by organisers.
