Great Britain's Winter Olympics team challenged to secure at least five medals

Yarnold, who has struggled this season, has been given a top-eight target for 2018 along with team-mate Laura Deas.

Much rests on the performance of short track speed skating world champion Elise Christie, on Eve Muirhead maintaining her momentum with the women's curling team and the ability of our snowboarders and slopestyle skiers to deliver on undoubted potential. Back in the summer of 2016, Britain's Paralympians were triumphant in Rio.

The medal target announcement was made at the Korean Cultural Centre UK in central London.

The offer comes a day after Seoul proposed holding working-level talks on Monday on the South Korean side of Panmunjeom to discuss the North's participation in the games.
