The Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 will climax, well for the Brits at least, with Friday's curling final which starts from 1.30pm.

David Murdoch and his team will bid for gold against Canada live on the BBC.

If you've no idea what curling is - or what the rules are - then fear not as here's our guide to the rules of curling.

Earlier today Team GB's women's curling team claimed bronze at the Sochi Winter Olympics following a 6-5 win over Switzerland.

Skip Eve Muirhead soaked up the pressure and landed her final stone on the bottom of the target to clinch victory.

Muirhead's all-Scottish rink shrugged off the disappointment of their semi-final defeat to Canada on Wednesday to secure the medal that at least equals GB's best-ever Winter Olympic medal haul of 1924 - four - with a gold or silver to come from the men's curling final against Canada on Friday.

It was the first Olympic medal for British women curlers since their coach Rhona Howie - then Rhona Martin - skipped GB to gold at Salt Lake City in 2002 and they had to come from behind to do it, not forging ahead until the eighth end.

Muirhead's team took some time to get into their stride at the Ice Cube Curling Center.

After a blanked first end, Mirjam Ott's team took a two in the second to put GB on the back foot.

A double take-out in the third end by Switzerland ultimately led to Muirhead having to take just one point before passing the hammer - the last shot of each end which is normally decisive - over to Ott.
