Three years ago he was an amateur before graduating at Q-School.

Nine months ago he nearly dropped off the professional circuit before gaining enough points at the world championship qualifiers to stay on (he went on to qualify and make his Crucible debut, too).

Last month, he had never reached the last 16 of a ranking event before.

Last week he was a rank outsider – the world number 81 – heading into the Welsh Open, but he recorded five deciding frame victories – one against Mark Selby and another against reigning world champion Ronnie O’Sullivan in one of the biggest upsets ever in a final.

Congratulations Jordan Brown – the lowest ranked player to win a ranking title in 28 years.
