Drago furious at himself after bizarre concession

Maltese snooker legend Tony Drago repeatedly hit himself after a bizarre concession this week at qualifying for the German Masters. reported that Drago was trailing Alan McManus in the deciding frame of their match, and had just pulled off the second of two snookers he needed to give himself a great chance of winning the match.

But just as he seemed set to wrap things up, he missed a simple shot on the pink to hand the advantage back to the Scot.

Infuriated, he conceded the match with an outstretched hand. McManus was declared the winner despite the frame still being up for grabs by either man, with 13 points the difference between the two and 18 points still available.

Drago instantly tried to retract his concession.

McManus refused and Drago went to his corner banged the side of his head several times in anger.
