TWO of Edinburgh’s most famous athletes, Sir Chris Hoy and Allan Wells, will help get the The Queen’s Baton Relay for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games under way in London on Wednesday.

The baton will travel to all the nations and territories of the Commonwealth during its journey of around 248 days.

The Queen will help set it on its way at the public launch ceremony at Buckingham Palace. She will place her message to the athletes inside the specially-designed baton which will not be read until the 
opening ceremony in July.
