Sweden are sure of another Olympic medal, after beating Hungary in the men's handball semi-final 27-26.

They will now play for a possible gold on sunday; against either current champions France, or Croatia, who have won twice. 

Sweden have taken silver in men's handball three times, but have not won any title for ten years. Swedish Radio Sport reports that expectations were low at the start of the Olympics, after the "Bengan Boys" disappointing performance in the latest euro and world handball championships.
