Joe Hendry lost in his first round match as his bid to win Commonwealth Games gold ended in disappointment.

The former NGW Tag Team Champion fought hard against home country favourite Nicolaas Verreynne but found the Aussie too much to handle in their 97kg freestyle wrestling bout.

Hendry later posted a tongue in cheek tweet- "my foot was on the rope" after Friday's bout on the Gold Coast.

The Prestigious One had qualified to compete for Team Scotland at the Games just two years after taking up amateur wrestling and after becoming British Champion.

Now Hendry will be flying back to the UK licking his wounds. So what does that mean for his scheduled appearance at our 10th Anniversary Show on Sunday May 6?
