Sweden win final Gold

Sweden claimed the final gold of the Games with a 3-2 victory over neighbours Finland in the men's ice hockey final on Sunday.

Nicklas Lidstrom's goal at 0.10 of the third period saw off the Finns, who were playing in their first men's final and hoping to win their first gold of the Games.

Despite a rousing finale, Swedish net-minder Henrik Lundqvist pulled off a series of fine saves - including a spectacular stop to deny Niklas Hagman an equaliser.
