Before & After: Alex “Hurricane” Higgins



Snooker legend Alex Higgins looked a shadow of his former self as he attended a charity fund-raiser in his honour. The 61-year-old, who won snooker’s world title in 1972 and 1982, is said to have been living on baby food after losing his teeth from radiotherapy while battling throat cancer.

Stars from the sport including Jimmy White, 47, John Virgo, 63, and Tony Knowles, 54, joined the “Hurricane” at Yang Sing Chinese restaurant in Manchester to raise £20,000 to pay for crucial surgery.
