Snooker player wins frame with amazing fluke

World of Sport

Thai snooker player Thanawat Thirapongpaiboon pulled off an amazing fluke to win a frame in his Haikou World Open match against England's Robert Milkins.

Thirapongpaiboon was trailing 4-1 in the first-to-five match and hanging on by a thread as the sixth frame went to a black ball decider.

The Thai was lining up a long black to effectively stay in the match - and then this happened:

The miraculous shot kept Thirapongpaiboon in the match, and buoyed by his good fortune he went on to win the next frame to make it 4-3.

After that, however, Milkins recovered to take the next frame and win the match, earning himself a clash against Scottish star Stephen Maguire.
