Inside Kyren Wilson's boozy World Snooker Championship afterparty


WORLD Snooker champion Kyren Wilson enjoyed a boozy afterparty celebration which involved bad karaoke and a joke about Barry Hearn.

The Warrior crushed the spirited comeback of qualifier Jak Jones 18-14 in a tense-filled Crucible final.

But the two put rivalries aside to share a drink as footage emerged from commentator Jerome Quinn at the post-match bash.

Champ Wilson got the mic and began to sing Robbie Williams’ hit Rock DJ… before thinking better of it.

He joked: “Nah, we’re having none of that! I’ve only had three Peroni’s, no chance.”

Wilson went onto hail opponent Jones before spotting snooker chief and businessman Hearn sharing a word.

That’s when he joked: “I’d like to start by saying what an amazing tournament Jak Jones has had… Barry’s just trying to sell him something!”

Wilson – who scooped the £500,000 top prize – cried tears of joy after beating Jones before sharing a hug with his brother and two sons.

And during his emotional post-match speech, he dedicated his victory to his family.

Wilson said: “I’ve dreamed of this moment since I was six years old. I’ve got my six-year-old and nine-year-old here with me.


“Hopefully, it inspires the next generation that it don’t matter how many times you get knocked down it’s about how many times you keep getting back up.

“Me and my family have had to work very hard for this moment, we’ve had a tough couple of s*** years.

“My dad’s there, my mum’s there – can you turn your flashlight off mum, please?!

“Lifting that beautiful Silver Lady in front of all my family, all of my friends, everyone that means the world to me.

“Everyone that’s helped me on this incredible journey. Listen, it means the absolute world to me.

“It still hasn’t sunk in… it probably will after another ten Peroni’s!”

Wilson ate only salmon in the run up to his title win – but fish was discarded during the after-party for chicken curry, chips and beers.

He never let go his grip of the silver snooker trophy – he cradled it like one of his children.

At the age of 32, time on his side to succeed again at the game’s highest level.

Wilson, who overtakes Ronnie O’Sullivan as world No.3, said: “I’d be disappointed if I only landed one. I believe I can become a multiple world champion.

“This first one must be the hardest one to win – surely! I can build a legacy in this sport and that’s something I’d like to have a good crack at now I’ve got this one out of the way.”
