He said: “This is something I have always dreamed of but never thought it was possible.

"Coming out here and playing Kim in the final, who is a great player, I didn’t think it could have gone my way but today it did and I really brought out my best game today.

“To get England a one-two, a gold-silver, is absolutely fantastic and that’s what we came here to do.

“It’s a bit different going into the match because you are playing against someone you train with all the time. It is strange playing a match against them, but you just have to go into it and do your best to win the match.”
