Scotland and China have sealed gold medals in thrilling fashion at the World Junior Curling Championships in Füssen.

Scotland produced a brilliant comeback in the last two ends of their final against defending champions Japan to claim a 9-7 victory in the women's final.

The win marks the first time that Scotland have won the women's title since 2012.

Fay Henderson, Robyn Munro, Holly Wilkie-Milne, and Laura Watt looked as though they were done when they conceded a steal to fall 7-4 behind in the eighth end.

However, a huge three-point haul in the penultimate period brought them level before skip Henderson sealed the deal in the 10th.

"The ninth end was definitely the changing point in the game," said Henderson.

"We knew that we needed a three.

"At one point we had an opportunity to take a cheap two, but we thought it wouldn't be enough, because we weren’t going to get two steals in a row from Japan, who are an absolutely amazing team."

Earlier on, Norway claimed the women's bronze medal with an 8-5 win against Switzerland.

China won men's gold for the first time ever with a nail-biting 8-7 win against host nation Germany.

Skip Xueqing Fei's side recorded crucial three-point hauls in the third and sixth ends on the way to victory.

Germany threatened to produce a comeback when they scored four unanswered points but a single point in the 10th from China put an abrupt stop to it.

"A lot of emotion - we got what we deserve," said Fei.

"The most important thing was to relax.

"We led the game early but then the game was more difficult for us in the last part."

Scotland dominated Norway 11-4 to win the bronze medal after just nine ends.
