Mouat’s father, Bob, was watching with his dog Abby at his home in Nathie Bridge, near Avimoor, when Bruce and teammates Grant Hardy, Bobby Lemmy and Hemi Macmillan defeated the United States 8-4 in Beijing. At least silver assured.

He will also watch Saturday’s final himself as he awaits the news that he has become a grandfather for the first time.

Mr Moat, 67, told the PA News Agency: “We are lucky that Bruce’s brother Colin and his partner Fern are expecting a tail in the next day or two, so this is going to be a big two day. ۔

“Bruce, with a little luck, he’ll have a double party.”

Mr Moat said he was not usually nervous about fighting Bruce, but admitted he had “no fingernails left” after Thursday’s tense semi-final.

He added: “I’m just proud, silent. I really enjoyed the trip they went on.

“Gobsmacked is probably the word.”

The victory came during a difficult game for Team GB, which has yet to win a medal in China.

Mout, who missed out on the mixed doubles as he and teammate Jennifer Dodd lost a bronze medal match to Sweden last week, looked extraordinarily emotional after Thursday’s victory.

“Even with the mixed doubles, he was clearly under a lot of pressure and I know he was really disappointed that he didn’t get the medal,” Mr Mutt said.

“So I think it’s just a relief that they’ve got at least one medal and the chance to be an Olympic champion when they’re there for the first time – and I’m talking about all the boys, that’s all. Let’s share. “

Mr Matt said it would be a pity if he did not come in person to watch the gold medal match, as he tries to get his son to compete as much as possible.

“I just like being with them,” he said.

But he is looking forward to watching the final at home with his Staffordshire Bell Terrier.
