The Scotland team – which includes Grant Hardie, Bobby Lammie and Hammy McMillan – required an extra end after Italy levelled at 6-6 in the tenth.

Mouat, a bronze medal winner at the World Championships in Las Vegas in April, kept his cool to clinch victory with the final stone.

Scotland lost 9-8 to final opponents Sweden earlier in the tournament, having gone into the tenth end 8-6 up.
