" Hawkins was taken to hospital in an ambulance, where he was sitting up and talking and not thought to be in serious danger, Team Scotand said".

Hawkins was left unattended for various minutes, so much to the dismay of commentators, reporters and viewers.

There are moreover strict pointers spherical accepting medical help with athletes coping with potential disqualification in the event that they're assisted.

He attempted to get back to his feet but lacked the strength to do so and eventually slumped to the ground with medical assistance seemingly taking an age to reach him.

Sports commentator Steve Cram said it was "a disgrace" that it took so long for any paramedics to attend to Hawkins.

"We are offering every assistance possible to Callum and Team Scotland".

"I like many others was distressed to see a wonderful athlete like Callum collapse during the closing stages of today's marathon", said chief organizer Mark Peters.

"GOLDOC has put in place a wide range of measures to ensure athlete welfare and the response of medical staff this morning was within agreed response guidelines and timeframes".

Callum Hawkins was 2000 metres from glory, a gold medal in the marathon to rank alongside some of Scotland's greatest achievements at the Commonwealth Games.

In a statement released later, he said: "medical staff were posted at 500mtr intervals in the final kilometres of the course, all of which had radio communications".

His latest tweet, on Thursday evening, said: "Never said when an attack on Syria would take place". National security experts anxious about whether strikes would actually serve to deter Assad.

On Twitter, Paula Radcliffe was also critical of the medical response.

'I was also concerned about the behaviour of a small number of bystanders who chose to take images, ' he said. "This is not in keeping with the spirit of GC2018", he said.

However, Australia thrashed Canada 87-47 in the men's basketball final, Shelley won the marathon and David Palmer and Zac Alexander were crowned men's doubles squash champions on the final day.

"I learned a lot from Callum and it got me going at halfway when they said Callum was in the lead".

"I saw him lying there and wanted to stop to see if he was alright. When I was coming down the home straight I tried to accelerate, but I was just gone".

Australia's Mike Shelley passed the prone Hawkins and retained the marathon title he won in Glasgow four years ago in two hours, 16.46 minutes. "I thought hopefully I can get to the finish line because I was starting to get cramps in my hands".

Fellow Tanzanian Saidi Juma Makula collapsed close to the finish line before being helped into an ambulance - one of seven of the 24 starters who failed to complete the race.

Hawkins had moved away from the pack and opened up a gap from Uganda's Munyo Solomon Mutai, who was initially behind him in second.

Helalia Johannes won the women's marathon in 2:32.40, becoming Namibia's first female gold medalist at the Commonwealth Games.
