Winter Olympics 2018: Mr. T loves curling, calls USA team

The United States' men curling team received a call from one of their biggest fans – Mr. T.

Actor and wrestler Mr. T is a huge advocate of curling, even calling to speak to the United States' men team on Saturday.

He has been tweeting about following the curlers since the opening ceremony and, as USA's gold medal match against Sweden neared, he was becoming more vocal about his favourite team of the Winter Olympics.

He wrote: "I like curling, it's less wear and tear on the body. I wrestled, boxed and studied martial arts. I have nothing else to prove. Therefore I choose curling. #curlingiscoolfool"
