Olympic champion Helen Glover and team-mate Polly Swann have eased into to the women's pair final at the World Championships at Chungju, South Korea.

The British duo, who were victorious at the World Rowing Cup this year, won their semi-final easily, over three seconds clear of the United States, with New Zealand in third.

Glover won Britain's first gold medal at London 2012 with Heather Stanning. The final will take place tomorrow afternoon local time.
