While Winter Olympic fever may not have gripped the nation like the Summer Games in 2012, here are Southampton players Jose Fonte and Jay Rodriguez getting into spirit of Sochi, trying their hand at curling...sort of.

Britain has excelled in the event at the Games this year, Eve Muirhead's women's team winning bronze this morning after their 6-5 victory over Switzerland in the bronze medal match.

The men's team, led by David Murdoch, have also already secured at least a silver medal in the event, and face Canada on Friday afternoon in the final, hoping to seal gold.

Including tomorrow's guaranteed medal, Britain equalled their best-ever medal tally at a Winter Olympics, level withe the four won in Chamonix in 1924.

Fonte is known as a defensive rock for Southampton, but here he is acting as a stone in the dressing room, while Rodriguez usually starts on the wing, he's happy to play the sweeper here.
