Result: Neil Robertson wins UK Championship

Neil Robertson fights back from 5-1 down to beat Mark Selby and win the UK Championship title.

Neil Robertson dominated the evening session as he completed a comeback from 5-1 down to win the UK Championship, beating Mark Selby 10-7.

Leading 5-3 after the first session on Sunday, Selby took the opening frame before breaks of 56, 122 and 132 helped the 2012 world champion level the match at 6-6.

Robertson, who edged out Stuart Bingham in Saturday's semi-final, then took the next two to move closer to the title but Selby, the defending UK champion, made a break 74 to get back within one frame.

However, the 31-year-old Australian held his nerve in the next two frames to secure his first UK title.
