Canada's Virtue and Moir win stunning ice dance gold

Canada's Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir conjured up a magical record breaking performance to win Olympic ice dance gold on Tuesday.


The Vancouver 2010 champions looked destined for silver after French rivals Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron appeared to have stolen the show, breaking their own free dance and combined score mark.

But skating last, Virtue and Moir pulled out the dance of their lives to earn 206.07 points, narrowly bettering the French duo's 205.28

In bronze came American brother and sister Maia and Alex Shibutani.
