KEY ACTION TO WATCH:
00:30: Women's triathlon. The first medal event could produce Commonwealth Games history as two-time reigning world champion Flora Duffy bids to win only Bermuda's second gold medal - and the first of any colour by a woman. British contenders include 2013 world champion Non Stanford of Wales and England's 2016 Olympic bronze medallist Vicky Holland.
04:00: Men's triathlon. Can anyone stop two-time Olympic gold medallist and reigning Commonwealth champion Alistair Brownlee claiming yet another major title? As ever, the man best placed to beat him over this sprint distance is brother Jonny, the Commonwealth and Olympic silver medallist.
08:07: Artistic gymnastics - men's team final and individual qualification. England, led by double Olympic champion Max Whitlock, defend their team title, which doubles as qualification for the individual all-around and apparatus finals. This is the third, and concluding, session.
10:37: Swimming - women's 400m individual medley final. Scotland's Hannah Miley is among the favourites as she chases a hat-trick of Commonwealth titles in this event. The 28-year-old from Aberdeen is the British record holder.
10:37: Track cycling - women's team pursuit final. Wales, led by Olympic champion Elinor Barker, could challenge a strong Australia team determined to win the inaugural Commonwealth women's team pursuit title. With Laura Kenny not competing and Joanna Rowsell Shand retired, England have turned to a callow but talented team.
12:44: Swimming - men's 200m breaststroke. Ross Murdoch of Scotland was a memorable winner of this event in Glasgow four years ago but admits he nearly quit after a disappointing Rio Olympics. Adam Peaty, the Olympic champion over 100m, was due to challenge his Team GB team-mate, but has now decided not to compete in this event.
