A rowdy fan at the Masters snooker interrupted the clash between Stuart Bingham and Kyren Wilson, leaving even the commentator confused.

With Bingham having only potted a solitary red in the opening frame, he lined up a routine blue into the middle pocket. The Englishman made no mistake with the simple pot, but it prompted a bizarre cry from the audience.

The loud shout sounded like "WHERE ARE WE," but regardless, it left the player bemused. The match referee also glanced up to the gallery in a bid to work out what had gone on.

The clash was covered by Eurosport and the lead commentator was clearly perturbed, saying: "Well whatever that was we certainly don't need anymore of it." But fans on Twitter were quick to make light of the incident at the Alexandra Palace, that recently hosted the PDC World Championship.

@DrMattJakeman posted a clip with the caption: "WTF is that all about?" with @tonylyles73 replying: "Just found his way out of the toilet after the darts." @Deco800_ added: "Lumped on blue first ball to be potted."

@crabpissLenin69 implied it was similar behaviour to that of American golf fans at the Ryder Cup, quipping: "Can't wait til they start the "Get in the hole!" for snooker." @DerwentBirder joked: "I can remember my first pint too."

The impromptu noise didn't affect the focus of Bingham though. Not only did he take the first frame, but also notched three centuries as he won the next four to move to the brink of a whitewash victory.

But Wilson then rallied, reducing the deficit to 5-3. The 2020 winner eventually came through a tense ninth frame to repel the comeback though, and move into a quarter final with Shaun Murphy on Friday.

It's not the only strange saga to have occurred at the Triple Crown event. Fresh from its latest appearance at the darts, the iconic Ally Pally wasp caused chaos in the match between Mark Williams and David Gilbert on Tuesday. The insect went for the Welshman when he was at the table, forcing him into evasive action.
