China’s Li Hang ran into problems in Berlin even before he had got out of Tegel airport. The 23-year-old arrived alone on a flight from London Heathrow, and engrossed on his phone in the baggage reclaim area was blissfully unaware that his cue had completely jammed the baggage belt. A helpful fellow passenger tried to unblock the logjam of suitcases, placing Li’s cue on top of a large pile of bags – but it duly fell off with a large crash on the floor, finally waking the player from his reverie. The world No96 anxiously examined his cue case for damage before heading off into the freezing night looking for a taxi.
