"It's been exciting for us to partner with Intel on the Winter Olympics, as they continue to push the limits with their advanced drone light show technologies", said Sam Prosser, commercial director EMEA APAC Guinness World Records.

However, South Korea's main opposition party warned any talks between the two Koreas where the scrapping of North Korea's nuclear programme was not a precondition would only "benefit the enemy".

South Korea has been using the Pyeongchang Games to break the ice with the reclusive North, which has been trading nuclear threats with the United States recently.

"We know that Western media are planning pseudo-investigations on the theme of "Russian fingerprints" in hacking attacks on information resources related to the hosting of the Winter Olympic Games in the Republic of Korea", Russia's foreign ministry said.

Ahead of the iconic match between Korea's unified women's ice hockey team and Switzerland, South Korea's President Moon Jae-in thanked Switzerland's President Alain Berset for his dedication toward creating a peaceful Olympics via Twitter.

The Olympics-inspired detente mood flared after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un abruptly expressed his willingness to send an Olympic delegation.
