WATCH: Fergal O'Brien qualifies for World Snooker championships after longest frame of all time

We're not going to lie to you, we have not watched this in its entirety.

Dubliner Fergal O'Brien will compete at the Crucible for the first time in seven years following Wednesday night's epic 19th and deciding frame against David Gilbert.

Level at nine frames a piece, the final stanza broke the world record for the longest snooker frame of all time - clocking in at over two hours and three minutes.

Longer than the world's quickest marathon, or a game of football plus extra-time, or two episodes of Game of Thrones and only 10 minutes shorter than Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The longest service game in tennis ever, between Noelle van Lottum and Sandra Begijn, was 52 minutes.

O'Brien managed to stay awake long enough to speak to a conscious member of the media afterwards: "Obviously in an ideal world you win a bit quicker than that.

"The balls went scrappy in the colours and I was so tired, double-checking everything and I'm so, so relieved.

"I'm looking forward to the draw now."
