Belgium's Luca Brecel became the first player from mainland Europe to claim snooker's World Championship with an 18-15 win over England's Mark Selby in the final in Sheffield.

Brecel, 28, is just the fourth non-British winner at the famous Crucible Theatre and the first overseas player to triumph since Neil Robertson in 2010. He climbs from 10th to second in the world rankings.
