A 16-year-old boy from California was the surprise winner of the grand final of the Classic Tetris World Championship in Oregon.
Joseph Saelee beat Jonas Neubauer, who has won seven times in the tournament’s eight-year history.
Joseph Saelle said he had started playing as a hobby after watching the championships in 2016, and he plays on an original 1985 Nintendo NES console.
He said he practises for a couple of hours each day on the device.
“Tetris is easy to learn but it can take years to master.” he said.
Tetris was invented 13 years older before he was born!
