Twitter reacts to 'disappointing' Commonwealth Games closing ceremony

CWG 2018 Naman Tanwar Wins for Bronze Three Others Amit Panghal Gaurav Solanki Manish Kaushik Enter Boxing Finals

Usain Bolt dee-jayed and Yohan Blake pranced around the ground dressed like Borobi, the mascot, as the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast came to an end in a spectacular but long-drawn closing ceremony on Sunday.

Jack Morton's managing director, Helen Graney, said the company has worked alongside GOLDOC to develop "creative elements" of the Opening and Closing ceremonies. I'm furious. Actually wrecking a tradition that is so important.

Former Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolts plays the DJ desks during the closing ceremony.

"We understand many people have been disappointed by tonight's closing ceremony and to be perfectly honest Jo, so have we been", Zempilas said.

Amid public outrage, Kurt Fearnley has calmly responded to the decision not to broadcast the moment athletes entered the stadium during the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games.

"With over half the athletes scheduled to depart the Gold Coast tomorrow, it is understandable that large numbers of athletes chose to depart the ceremony early, to prepare for their journey or attend their own team celebrations", it said. They made the decision not to have athletes enter the stadium.

"This decision to bring the athletes into the stadium before the broadcast was operationally driven given there were restrictions on being able to keep the athletes waiting in comfort".

"I love my sport and I'm sure there are plenty of athletes and parents of athletes from all around the Commonwealth who would have loved to see their guys come into the stadium".

Tata Motors shares fall 4% after JLR's job-cut plan
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR ) has cut 1000 jobs at its Solihull base this week, according to a new report out of the UK. This move came a day removed from Volvo announcing it would only make electric or hybrid models starting in 2019.

"Right now, we have just finished the best and most inclusive Commonwealth Games that we have ever had. The people who have been critical are also justified", Beattie said.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has also hit out at the ceremony's organisers, today telling reporters those behind the debacle should "hang their head in shame". "I accept full responsibility for it", he said.

Zempilas explained it was the decision of the host broadcaster to have the athletes in the stadium before the ceremony begun.

NEP, the American broadcast company in charge of sending footage to every Commonwealth nation, referred blamers to a statement from the GOLDOC Chairman this morning, tweeting they were "just as disappointed in tonight's outcome" as the viewers.

"It hasn't really lived up to expectations and I've got to say it's about the only thing they got wrong, but they did get it wrong tonight".

"When you've got thousands of athletes, the problem is, where do you put them?"

"But we made a mistake".
