Video: Ricky Walden's amazing World Championship 'Superman' snooker escape - and he leaves cue ball in safe position

Published 18/04/2016

Ricky Walden pulled off a miraculous escape in the World Championship to both escape a snooker and leave his opponent with a daunting shot.

Commentating on the first round tie second frame , John Virgo said even Superman would struggle to find an escape, without leaving a red on.

But, incredibly Walden was able to do just that.

"I do not believe it," said Virgo when the cue ball ended in a safe position.

"The things that happen on a snooker table, it's only 12ft by six."
