TV viewers struggled to keep abreast of the 1997 Masters final between Ronnie O'Sullivan and Steve Davis after a topless female streaked bounced her boobs around the table.
Snooker is often labelled by some as boring. But even the most ardent critic stood to attention during the third frame of the 1997 Masters showdown as sexy secretary Lianne Crofts stole the show.
With O'Sullivan 4-0 ahead in the third frame, whoops and whistles went up from the crowd as the busty babe burst out from the crowd and jumped around the table. The referee didn't know where to look - but the TV cameras certainly did.
Broadcasters captured every moment of Crofts' audacious stunt, from her spectacular breast-bouncing entrance to her run to the sidelines and her hand-waving return to the centre of the arena.
Crofts - who didn't even wear a dickie bow during her streak - went quietly in the end as security escorted her away from the blue ball - and all the others - on the table.

O'Sullivan certainly enjoyed the daring escapade and covered the ref's eyes with his hand as he struggled to contain his amusement. Davis, meanwhile, sat in the corner chuckling to himself.
The secretary, in her early-20s at the time, revealed the intimate details of her 15 seconds of fame in an interview with The People in 1999. She said: "Watching a football match with my parents when I was six, we saw a streaker run onto the pitch.
"I can remember jumping up and down and saying that I wanted to do that when I grew up. Two years ago, I did. I don't particularly like snooker, but I was in London visiting some friends when I heard about a championship.
"It came to me as quick as a flash, if you'll excuse the pun. A big snooker championship would be a great place to do my streak.
"Snooker matches are dead boring anyway, so I thought I'd cheer one up a little. I was dead nervous as I settled into my seat with these old dears all around me. I sat next to the aisle, not too far back from the actual playing area. I hoped I'd be able to plant a kiss on Steve Davis's cheek and reckoned it would be really easy. There was nothing I'd have to clamber over.
"Throughout the first 30 minutes, I was literally on the edge of my seat, both bored rigid and whipped up to a frenzy. Then, to the horror of a very respectable lady and gentleman next to me, I proceeded to whip off all my clothes. I'd deliberately put on a skirt and top that I knew I'd be able to get out of easily. Then I tore down the steps, stark naked!
"It all happened so quickly. Before I knew it, I was down by the table. It was only a matter of seconds, of course, before someone put a coat around me and yanked me off. I had time to blow a kiss at the camera, but sadly I didn't have time to kiss Steve. He had his back turned to me and said afterwards that he would have been livid if I'd distracted him."
