Mark Selby first hits 147 in World Snooker Championship final

Mark Selby scored the first 147 in a World Snooker Championship final when he cleared the table in his battle against Luca Brecel.

Brecel dropped a red over the corner pocket and Selby complied before stepping up and going all out. The balls were well spread, but the four-time world champion still needed to carefully navigate the last red near the sideline and left the cue ball behind before pocketing the rest.

He stuck his tongue out at his watching wife and daughter as he walked around the table to the black end, before nervelessly wading in to make history.
