AG Barr's links with Glasgow date back over a century, and the company are delighted to be associated with the games.

"Glasgow 2014 is massively exciting, whether you're taking part, volunteering or watching," Roger White, AG Barr chief executive, said.

"The games will bring something extraordinary to a very special city, and we are delighted to play our part in that."
