The Hong Kong cueist collected her second world title and pocketed the £5,000 winner’s cheque after a brace of remarkable deciding frame victories.

The 26 year-old first knocked out the defending champion and the favourite Reanne Evans 5-4 in the semi-finals, coming from 60 points down in the final frame to pinch victory on the pink.

10 hours later following a marathon final with India’s Vidya Pillai, the 2015 champion repeated the trick by sinking the final pink in a tense climax to edge a gruelling contest 6-5.

It marked the first time since 1989 that a World Women’s Championship had gone the distance.

An exhasuted On Yee said on social media afterwards: “Thank you so much for everyone’s support. After 15 hours of snooker, I’m looking forward to coming home.”
