They say the sign of a misspent youth is being a good snooker player. Well Belgian teen Luca Brecel must have grown up playing snooker using a stool to reach the table.
He is the fifth seventeen year old in the history of the game to reach the Crucible - and he scored a century on his debut to celebrate - although it wasn't enough for him to beat Stephen Maguire, going down by 10-6 to the Scot.
Makes a change from the teenagers in this country who were out rioting last summer - then again perhaps theirs nothing to riot about in Belgium!
Talking of riots - today sees the start of Ronnie O'Sullivan v Peter Ebdon, and there was controversy over Ebbo's slow play last time they played.
