    Hogline controversy: Great Britain curling team beaten by Sweden at Winter Olympics

    Does curling need video replays? Can the sport rely on technology? And what are the rules regarding the hogline?

    It was a curling controversy that confused and divided opinion among viewers, and frustrated Great Britain's women's team as they lost in unusual circumstances to Sweden on Sunday.

    With the game in an extra end, GB Skip Eve Muirhead was judged not to have let go before the hogline with her final stone, which meant it was void.

    The Swedes then secured an 8-6 victory.

    There was plenty of reaction to the incident after the game, including BBC Sport commentator Jackie Lockhart who said the sport needed video replays.

    "I have never seen that before, especially with the last stone in the last end," said Lockhart, a four-time Olympian.
