Scottish marathon runner Callum Hawkins has been released from hospital, after he collapsed at the Commonwealth Games.

The 25-year-old was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital and following his discharge is now reunited with his teammates in the Commonwealth Games Village, ahead of their return home.

Hawkins received treatment at Gold Coast University Hospital, with Team Scotland later revealing he was sitting up and speaking with family and medical staff.

He was going for his first major title, having finished fourth in the World Championships previous year.

Thanking medics after being discharged, Hawkins said: "It's great to be back with my team-mates".

Team Scotland added: "We would like to thank all the supporters and well-wishers for their kind messages of support and the care and concern that has been shown, particularly here on the Gold Coast".

With a lead of around two minutes, Hawkins fell with Australia's Michael Shelley passing him to win the race, as Scotland's Robbie Simpson won bronze.

"As you know the worldwide rules are very clear in that an athlete has to declare themselves unfit to race [before they can receive any medical attention]", he said.
