The statement read: "Team Scotland is pleased to confirm that Callum Hawkins continues to make a good recovery from the heat exhaustion and subsequent collapse he experienced during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Marathon today".
Commonwealth Games organisers were heavily criticised for not providing sufficient medical assistance to a Scottish marathon runner who collapsed but was not attended to by paramedics for several minutes.
Hawkins was quickly back on his feet but no more than 100m further on he hit the deck for a second time, only just missing a metal roadside barrier with his head as he fell.
BBC commentators Steve Cram and Paula Radcliffe voiced their anger at the slowness of the medical response, with Cram seemingly exasperated saying: "He's going to hurt himself and there's nobody anywhere near".
"I'm just concerned for his welfare", Cram said.
Hawkins was visibly struggling before falling and banging his head against a barrier. I'm sorry if you're watching this at home, it's really distressing. "You can't have medical people on every kilometer of the road".More news: Russian Federation accuses Boris Johnson of 'distorting' OPCW findings on Skripals
This is a guy in real distress and someone needs to recognise it.
"Where on earth is the help?" You can not just wait at the finish line - people get in distress further down the course.
When asked to explain why it took so long for paramedics to attend to Hawkins, Gold Coast organising committee (GOLDOC) chief executive Mark Peters said: "We need to check the facts out".
Team Scotland's statement continued: "Whilst Callum's recovery is our clear priority, we are still reviewing the circumstances of today's race with GOLDOC and the CGF to ensure the continued health and wellbeing of all athletes remains paramount".
Peoplewatching the race television took on media to share their outrage during that full time it took to get medical care booking those audiences using pictures of Hawkins particular ire.

Australia's Michael Shelley ran past the stricken leader, who by this point was being tended to, shortly after as the hometown athlete went on to triumph, with Hawkins' fellow Scot Robbie Simpson also passing him to take third on the line in a time of 2:19.36, nearly three minutes behind Shelley. Michael Shelley ran past to win the race and defend the title he won at Glasgow four years ago.

This is not in keeping with the spirit of GC2018.
But Australia suffered setbacks on the last day when their women's rugby team, the Olympic champions, lost a sudden-death thriller against New Zealand in the inaugural final.
"I saw him (Callum) on the Sundale Bridge and thought 'Oh s***' and just tried to hang on". Hawkins, who was fourth at the World Championships past year, was reported one hour after the race to be conscious. He dropped three close pursuers in the 28th kilometre and by 35km had built up a lead of well over two minutes over Shelley.More news: NCAA modifies kickoff rules on fair catches
