Britain's Reanne Evans has extended her own record by winning the Women's World Snooker Championship for the 12th time.

Evans defeated home hope Nutcharut Wongharuthai 6-3 in the final in Thailand to claim the title for the first time since 2016.

The 33-year-old, from Dudley in the West Midlands, hit a top break of 92 on the way to victory.

She won the women's title 10 years running from 2005 before China's Ng On-yee ended her reign.

Evans was the first woman to reach the final stages of a ranking tournament - the Wuxi Classic in 2013 - and has been just two wins away from reaching the men's World Championship at the Crucible.
