Robertson comes from 5-1 down to beat Selby 10-7 in York.

The Australian found himself playing catch-up for the majority of the match as Selby sailed into a 5-1 lead at the beginning of the game. However, the world number one began to finally show his credentials to pull himself back into the game and crucially grab the final two frames of the afternoon session to head in at 6-6.

As the players returned for the evening session, Robertson continued to hold the momentum in the match and went on to win three of the next four frames, leaving him just one away from victory.

And Robertson duly obliged in the following frame as he hit a break of 57 to seal victory after Selby had built up a strong-looking lead. The win in York means that Robertson is now only the eighth player to have won the UK, World and Masters titles.
