A sad day for the world of snooker, I was brought up on snooker, football, tennis and cricket and the hurrican Higgins was one of the key snooker stars at that time, a real character who will be sorely missed.

He was 61 and had suffered ill health for some time.
Belfast-born Higgins, who won the world title in 1972 and 1982, was suffering from throat cancer.
His biographer and friend Sean Boru told Sky News:
