Chinese Curling boss has a go at his men's skip

China's curling boss has lashed out at his skip at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, accusing him of "thinking too much" and being "unable to control his emotions".

China's men's team lost 9-4 to Great Britain to remain rooted to the foot of the 10-nation group with a 1-6 record.

Team leader Li Dongyan says they have to teach their skip to control his emotions.

Li refused to compare the problems of the men's team to the success of the women's squad who are the reigning world champions and are handily-placed to make the semi-finals.

He says the men are a young team and this is their first Olympics.
