Great Britain’s men edged out Switzerland to make a winning start to their curling campaign at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
Led by Kyle Smith, the British quartet were 2-1 up after five ends, 4-3 down after eight, and pegged back to 5-5 in the 10th.
However, Smith was left with a simple shot to close out the game in the sudden-death extra end.
After their 6-5 win, Britain will play defending champions Canada later.
That match – the second of nine that Britain will play in the round-robin stage – is due to begin at 11:05 GMT.
The top four teams from the round-robin stage will progress to the semi-finals.
Great Britain’s men earned silver four years ago, losing to Canada in the final in Sochi.
The British women’s curling team – consisting of Eve Muirhead (skip), Anna Sloan, Vicki Adams and Lauren Gray, along with alternate Kelly Schafter – open against Olympic athletes from Russia at 05:05 GMT.
Muirhead, Sloan, Adams and Gray were all part of the team that won bronze in 2014.
Other Britons in action on Wednesday
- Biathlete Amanda Lightfoot races in the women’s 15km individual event at 11:05 GMT.
- However, Alex Tilley will have to wait until Friday to compete in the women’s slalom after high winds caused the event to be postponed.
