Scottish snooker player John Higgins is one of the most successful players in the modern history of the sport. His four world titles rank him fifth behind Stephen Hendry, (7), Steve Davis (6), Ray Reardon (6) and Ronnie O’Sullivan (5).
Nicknamed ‘The Wizard of Wishaw’, John held the number one ranking on four separate occasions. With his superb tactical game and break-building class, many place him alongside Steve Davis as one of the best all round players of the modern era.
John signed my sketch at the famous Crucible Theatre in Sheffield during this year’s World Championships last month.
