In the minds of many fans, five-time Olympic medallists Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are a flawless match both on and off the ice.

While Canadians are still trying to recover from the couple's spellbinding performance to music from Moulin Rouge, Tessa and Scott are basking in the glory of being the most-decorated figure skaters of all time.

Skier Cassie Sharpe then won the freestyle skiing women's halfpipe gold.

Elsewhere, Germany continued its pressure on medals table leader Norway with Johannes Rydzek winning Nordic combined men's 10km.

The Canadians responded with a personal-best 122.40 points and a record 206.07 total, pushing them just past their French rivals' overall score of 205.28. "We came back to win the second gold medal, that was the goal".

It adds to their gold from the team event last week, their gold at Vancouver 2010 and their two silvers from Sochi 2014.

Dubreuil and Lauzon, who married following their retirement in 2008, almost managed a podium sweep with Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue. This might also be their last Olympics together, which has led people (us) to speculate: are they gonna date now or what? The U.S. will play the Czech Republic in the quarterfinals on Wednesday. "And part of the reason maybe we wouldn't continue (competing) is to open up that side of our life maybe, and see where that goes".

Yes, yes, we know. "As coaches we look at how all the teams performed, how they were trained, handled nerves and the expectations, and I think, you know, we're super proud of them". "So we trusted ourselves and we needed to believe in that program so it felt so good to really execute that in the moment".

There were tears and cheers as the unified Korean women's hockey team exited the Olympics with a 6-1 defeat to Sweden in their final game. She earned a 95.80 on her second set - highlighted by a 1080-degree spin - that was the highest-ever score in the sport's brief Olympic history.

Despite coming out of retirement for this year's games, interestingly the pair haven't ruled out making it to the Beijing Olympics in four years time.

Away from the ice rinks and ski slopes, the Olympics are dealing with a third doping case, with Slovenian ice hockey player Ziga Jeglic ordered to leave the Olympic Village within 24 hours, after testing positive for fenoterol, a drug that is created to open the airways to the lungs.

It's the second straight global tournament from which Jeglic has been suspended.

Russian curler Alexander Krushelnitsky tested positive for the banned substance meldonium and Moscow's sports minister waded into the controversy on Tuesday when he said the athlete was innocent of knowingly taking the drug.

In speed skating, host Korea took home the gold medal in the women's 3,000-kilometer relay, with Italy winning the silver and the Netherlands earning the bronze.

The South Korean team surpassed China in the final sprint before claiming the gold in four minutes and 7.361 seconds.
