Iranian making history in snooker... for being Iranian

I realise it's been a while since I've last posted on here and apologies if this topic had been raised, but I've been following snooker (as you do) and noticed there's an Iranian competing at professional level. He is the first person from Iran to compete professionally.

So here introducing... Hossein Vafaei Ayouri!

Ayouri broke into the top 100 earlier in the year but raising eye-brows as he progresses in tournaments and surely one to look out for in the next couple of years.
