The Commonwealth Games starts today and unlike in the Olympics, England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales will all be competing against one another.

We’ve taken a look at the official Commonwealth games site and taken the place of birth for each of the athletes representing the different teams.

And when it comes to the England team, more of the athletes were born, perhaps unsurprisingly, in London than any other city - 36.

The likes of badminton player Rajiv Ouseph, who was born in Hounslow, and 5,000m runner Julia Bleasdale, who grew up in Hillingdon, are among the athletes from the capital going for glory in Glasgow.

Leeds has the second highest number of athletes in the team with 13 while Birmingham and Leicester have the joint third highest with nine.

Manchester and Liverpool both have six athletes competing in the games.

However, when it comes to looking at England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Wales as a whole, London doesn't come out on top.

In fact, the most commonly represented city across the four teams is Belfast with 46 athletes.

Glasgow is in second place with 44, Edinburgh in third on 43, and London fourth with 42.

Cardiff has 34 competitors and is the fifth most represented city.
