Pool player Naoyuki Oi is the best interview

Pool player Naoyuki Oi delivered an extraordinary post-match interview after winning his World Pool Masters match - one that nearly left Sky Sports presenter Tony Wrighton lost for words.

Oi beat Cheng Yu Hsuan 8-6 to book his place in the last eight of the Gibraltar tournament on Saturday.

He then had the audience roaring with laughter as he answered Wrighton's questions moments after victory.

"My name is Naoyuki Oi and I am very, very lucky," he said.

"Congratulations me! Yay!"

Oi confirmed he didn't speak a lot of English, but didn't let it stop him giving a quite brilliant performance.

Success today would be very lucrative for Oi. The winner of the event, which finishes later on Sunday, will take home £16,000 in prize money.
