It means that Team GB have their first guaranteed medal of the Games on the 13th day of the Olympics, following a tense 8-4 final end win in the semi-final on Thursday.

So, here’s when Great Britain will go for gold in the curling and how to watch it.
Who is playing?
The Great Britain team of Bruce Mouat, Grant Hardie, Bobby Lammie and Hammy McMillan will take on the Swedish team who beat Canada 5-3 in another tight semi-final.
And the Scots will have no reason to doubt their ability to win, after defeating the Swedes 7-6 earlier in the competition.
Canada will take on the USA in the Bronze Medal match.
When will the final take place?
The final will start on Saturday, February 19, at 2.50pm local time on Sheet B at the Beijing National Aquatic Centre.
This means you’ll have to get up early to cheer on Team GB, as that equates to 6.50am UK time on Saturday.

When is the women’s final?
The women’s final will start on Sunday, February 20, at 9.05am local time on Sheet B at the Beijing National Aquatic Centre.
