But the two put rivalries aside to share a drink at the post-match afterparty.

Jones met wife Inna – a law student – in Latvia in 2016 while playing at the Riga Masters.

And they were pictured together at the afterparty bash as Wilson gave a speech to the audience.

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.

But the runners-up from Wales pocketed himself £200,000 and gave all the praise to Wilson.

He said: “Congratulations to Kyren and his family. They deserved it so much.

“An unbelievable tournament for me. A month ago, I was twitching in my first qualifying match. I am happy with that.

“I thought if I would try tried my best and see what happens but Kyren is solid and has a good all-round game. It wasn’t to be.”

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.

Wilson – who overtakes Ronnie O’Sullivan as world No.3 – has time on his side at 32 to succeed again at the game’s highest level.

And he 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.”
