Three security guards have been removed from duties at the Commonwealth Games after reports that staff took “selfie” photographs with sprint superstar Usain Bolt.

The Evening Standard newspaper reported that the world’s fastest man had been approached as he trained beside Hampden Park earlier this week.

It is understood three contract security staff were removed from their roles at Glasgow 2014’s training facilities at Lesser Hampden after breaching conditions of their employment.

All three are still employed by the company but are no longer working at Glasgow 2014.
