David Murdoch related his remarkable come from behind victory over Denmark at the Winter Olympics in Sochi to his World Championship winning campaign in 2009.

Skip Murdoch and the British men’s rink came from 5-1 down to defeat the Danes 8-6 – their fourth win in a row – which puts them equal first with Sweden and China.

The British men’s rink now have a record of five wins and one loss and Murdoch, who won the second of his world titles in 2009, is feeling increasingly confident.

“It was an incredible game. I don’t think I have come out with an adrenalin rush from a game of curling like that since the worlds in 2009,” he said.

“There was a huge momentum swing after the sixth end and it is incredible to be part of such a team spirit like that.

“We were really pumped for coming out in that sixth end and ready to have a good go at them. We had to take some risks but we got that big three and that turned the match on its head.

“It was great to be part of that and I am really proud of the guys. We really believe in ourselves and the confidence is sky high with this team and it’s a great feeling. If we can just keep that confidence and stay sharp we’re dangerous out there.”
