Jimmy White with Alex Higgins back in 1986, four years after their Crucible semi-final rollercoaster

It’s been 40 years since the Hurricane was blown away by the emotion of winning his second World Snooker title. Happy tears misted the eyes of Alex Higgins as he cradled the trophy in one arm and baby girl Lauren in the other.

It’s also been 40 years since THAT semi-final and THAT frame against his best pal and fellow force of nature Jimmy White. Now approaching 60, the Whirlwind is as engrossing and genuine as you want heroes to be.
