Kylie Minogue, Lulu, Deacon Blue and more than 2,000 performers will bring the curtain down on the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow later.

A crowd of 40,000 people will watch the 90-minute closing ceremony inside Hampden Stadium, with millions more watching on TV.

Organisers say the theme of the show is "All Back To Ours", with a narrative of a "typical night out in Glasgow".

It follows a successful Games for Team Scotland, who have topped 50 medals.

Ceremony artistic director said the show would reflect a spontaneous "we don't want this moment to end" feel.

During the ceremony, Glasgow will officially pass on the host city mantle to Australia's Gold Coast for 2018.
