The professional trio were pushed all the way in the final though by India who fought from 2-0 down to level the match 2-2 before Ding sealed victory.

Brijesh Damani and Aditya Mehta lost their respective singles matches to Ding and Liang to give China a perfect start, however, the Indians then paired up to beat Liang and Ding in the doubles.

Mehta then defeated Liang - setting up a final frame showdown between Ding and Damani.

It was a tight one-frame showdown for the gold medal but six-time ranking event gold medallist Ding edged it 58-30.
