Snooker legend Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins dies at 61
Former world snooker champion Alex Higgins has died aged 61 after a long battle against throat cancer.
The 1972 and 1982 world champion, a heavy smoker, was reportedly found dead in his flat in Belfast on Saturday.
I used to love watching him play, as was said before he was the McEnroe of snooker.
He was awesome and funny with it.
Sad news, agree with all said above
