Sweden produced two points in the tenth end as they snuck an 8-7 victory over Scotland at the World Women's Curling Championship to confirm their place in the semi-finals.

Anna Hasselborg's team left it late to win a back-and-forth tie at the morning session as they improved their record to eight wins from nine.

Sophie Jackson had guided Scotland to a 7-6 lead with two points in the eighth end but the Swedes completed their comeback at the death, leaving Scotland with four wins and five losses.

Elsewhere, South Korea took a comfortable 9-5 win over Denmark after a flurry of five points in the final three ends – moving them to seven wins so far in the championship.

Switzerland saw off Canada 9-3 in eight ends while Japan needed just six to beat Latvia by the same score.
