Thailand’s Nutcharut Wongharuthai made a 147 break during a practice match in her homeland – believed to be the first maximum by a woman in snooker history.

The 19-year-old, commonly known as ‘Mink’, made the break at the Hi-End Snooker Club on Monday.

Wongharuthai reached two ranking finals in her breakthrough season in 2018, rising to eighth in the world rankings.

Watch her 147 break below:

Reanne Evans and Emma Parker made history in February by becoming the first women to compete on TV in the final stages of a world ranking event.

The 11-time world champion was narrowly beaten by Jimmy White at the one-frame Snooker Shoot Out in Watford, while Parker lost to India's Laxman Rawat.
