Steve has been with BBC Sport for 17 years
Steve Rider will be the main anchor-man of the BBC's Commonwealth Games coverage.

It will be the first time that Rider has been at the Games because he normally links coverage from London.

Steve joined BBC Sport in July 1985.

After spending six years presenting Sportsnight, he moved over to his current job as the main presenter of Grandstand, succeeding Desmond Lynam.

In October 1998, he presented Grandstand's special 40th birthday edition from Ascot Racecourse.

Steve has also covered several Summer and Winter Olympic Games for the BBC.

He is also the frontman for the BBC's golf and motorsport coverage, and his role with Grandstand involves presenting prestigious events such as rugby union's Six Nations Championship.

A regular co-presenter of the BBC Sports Review of the Year, Steve plays golf and has a keen interest in motor racing - particularly the British Touring Car Championship.

He is a life-long supporter of Charlton Athletic FC, but tries not to let it show during Final Score!

Steve lives in Berkshire with his wife and their two children.
