The debate between sports fans across the globe often comes down to one thing. What is the most difficult thing to do between a nine-dart finish in darts, a hole-in-one in golf, or to make a 147 in snooker. This afternoon, one of those rare things happened with Kyren Wilson making a 147 at the World Championship.

It was just the 13th maximum break in Crucible history with Wilson becoming only the ninth person to ever do it at the venue. The Englishman potted  15 reds, 15 blacks and all the colours to complete a memorable 147 break during his first round win over Ryan Day.

After losing the final back in 2020, Kyren Wilson will be more eager than ever to go all the way this time and speaking to the BBC after his first-round win, he said that he was "absolutely buzzing" with the outcome.

I'm absolutely buzzing. I'm so happy with that,

I've said for a long time I want to leave a legacy , that's something my kids can watch back again. It's been on my bucket list.

There's no pressure like it. I actually got a little bit distracted and when I got down for the pink  I couldn't feel my right arm. That will live long in the memory.
