Amateur female snooker player to compete against men

An amateur snooker player is set to become the first woman ever to play equally against men in the final of a ranking tournament.

Nine-time women's champion Reanne Evans will compete against some of the worlds top ranked players in the Wuxi Classic competition in China next month.

Evans is one of the 64 players to have qualified after she defeated Thailand's Thepchaiya Un-Nooh in Gloucester on Tuesday.

BBC Breakfast asked her how she feels about her big break.
