Mark Williams won the BetfredWorld Championship for the third time by beating John Higgins 18-16 in one of the all-time great Crucible finals.
'Last time I won I had a glass of milk and went to bed but I'm going to party the night away this time'. I had to wear the towel on the orders of Barry Hearn (chairman of World Snooker) otherwise I would just have walked in, just crying.

Williams thanked wife Joanne for convincing him to keep playing when he contemplated quitting previous year.
