·2-min read

After Britain’s men’s curlers had to settle for silver after defeat in the Winter Olympic final on Saturday, Eve Muirhead & Co. get the chance to go one better as they go for gold on the final day of the Games.

Beijing is making history as the first host of both Summer and Winter Olympics, having staged the latter only 14 years ago. The iconic Bird’s Nest Stadium which hosted the opening and closing ceremonies in 2008 will do so again this time around.

In total, the Games will feature 109 events across 15 disciplines in seven different sports, including seven events which will see their first ever Olympic champions crowned.

Today’s coverage and times

Today (Sunday, February 20) is day 16 of the Games. The BBC’s coverage of the sporting action switches across BBC One and BBC Two between 00:00am and 11.15am GMT. There is also coverage on BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport website from 1am GMT.

Coverage of the closing ceremony will then be shown on BBC One between 12:00pm and 2:00pm GMT.

Eurosport have live coverage of the final day of action across their two main channels from 2.00am GMT.

What time will the Beijing Winter Olympics be on in the UK?

As with Tokyo last summer, Beijing is eight hours ahead of the UK, meaning British fans face late nights and early starts if they fancy catching the action live.

Most days, the sport will start soon after midnight GMT and will usually be wrapped up by about 3pm.

Which TV channels will be showing the Olympics in the UK?

In the UK, the Games will be shared between free-to-air coverage on the BBC and subscription channel Eurosport.

The former will show more than 300 hours of action across BBC One and BBC Two, while Eurosport will offer even more extensive coverage.

How can I stream the Olympics online?

TV licence fee-payers can stream the action for free on the BBC website and via the BBC iPlayer app, with the broadcaster offering additional streams to its TV coverage.

Eurosport subscribers can stream the action online or via the Eurosport Player app, while Discovery+ will offer every moment from every event streamed live.
