    Ali Carter claimed his first title since overcoming lung cancer as he beat Shaun Murphy to win the Paul Hunter Classic on Sunday.

    Carter triumphed 4-3 at the European Tour event in the German city of Fürth to earn the £18,000 top prize.

    The two-time World Championship runner-up was pegged back from 3-1 ahead by Murphy but clinched the title with a break of 95 in the seventh frame.

    The tournament is named after Paul Hunter, who died after a cancer battle in 2006. Carter was diagnosed with lung cancer in May 2014 and underwent chemotherapy to beat the disease, a year after also having surgery to overcome testicular cancer.

    He won the invitational General Cup in Hong Kong last October before being given the lung cancer all-clear in December.

    The 36-year-old wrote of his latest victory on Twitter: “What do we all think of that then!!!? Can’t believe I’ve won again after everything I’ve been through. Special.”
