Mark Williams remained faithful to his word after getting his third world snooker title by carrying out his post-match media conference in the nude. The 43 years old, who has given his word to strip naked if he triumphed was able to defeat John Higgins of Scotland with a score of 18-16 in a spectacular finals and turned out to be the event’s oldest victor for 4 decades.
“It’s an unbelievable story, 12 months ago I was thinking of chucking it. Here I am winning the 2018 World Championships … bollock naked. Where has it come from? Unbelievable 12 months. If I never win another tour or my form goes downhill I don’t care. I’ve just done something I thought I’d never ever do.”
The three-times world champ was excited on the idea of coming back to the Crucible this coming year and guaranteed to perform his very best if he successfully guarded his title.
“I’m just looking forward to coming back next year, I’m not going to say anything stupid and end up like this but to be honest if I won this next year I’d cartwheel down here naked.”
