And that is your lot for today folks.
Thanks for your company, tweets, vines, comments and general chit-chat. It has been a pleasure for this humble correspondent.
I’ll be back tomorrow afternoon but kicking things off once more as the sport commences will be the ever effervescent Tom McGowan.
There's medals to be handed out in men's downhill skiing, ladies' 7.5 km biathlon, men's 30 km skiathlon and luge to name but a few. You won’t miss a minute of action with us on the ball, I tell you!
Until then, good afternoon, good evening and good night (depending on your geo-location).
Everyone loves a spectacular photograph. What we love even more here at CNN’s Winter Olympics live-blog are pretty winter sports pictures.
Thankfully there’s a CNN collage of the best photography captured at the games so far. Check them out here, you won’t be disappointed.
