Midlothian’s Angela Allen showed some of the world’s best athletes the way at the Sainsbury’s Glasgow Grand Prix.

The 47-year-old, who is the store manager at the Livingston branch of Sainsbury’s, led out the men’s javelin throwers, including eventual champion Thomas Rohler, on to the Hampden Park track.
