Eve Muirhead's team got their defence off to a winning start

Eve Muirhead guided Scotland to an opening day victory over Denmark in the European Curling Championships.

Muirhead's rink, defending the title they won in 2017, triumphed 7-4 in Estonia in the women's round robin tie.

The Great Britain skip recently stated that she will be entering fewer competitions in the future after having surgery on one of her hips.

Scotland's men's team also enjoyed a winning start in Tallinn, with two victories from two.

Bruce Mouat's team won 8-7 against Norway, with the deciding point coming in the final end.

The Scots then went on to defeat Germany 8-3 later on Saturday evening.

Scotland's women, who won the event last year by defeating Sweden, will take on the Scandinavians again on Sunday in a repeat of that final in their next match.
