Lee Slattery revealed how he rushed back to his apartment earlier this week ahead of the European Masters in Switzerland to see his wife give birth to their second child via FaceTime.
Slattery had been waiting for his wife’s call for the best part of a week, but somehow managed to keep his emotions in check en route to finishing second at last week’s Czech Masters.
Upon learning his wife Faye had gone into labour on Tuesday, the Englishman realised his only option was to watch the birth take place over FaceTime.

“Being so far out and such a tricky place to get to, there was no way I could make it back once I found out,” said Slattery.
“So I rushed back to the apartment, and two hours later there was a baby.”
“It was very, very exciting watching it happen. I was quite emotional.”
Slattery will likely be heading home as early as Saturday as he currently sits well down the board at the European Masters after day one.
