Higgins' daughter on 'genius' dad
- From the section Snooker
Alex Higgins' daughter Laura Higgins says her 'genius' dad was born before his time and would have thrived in the 'faster' modern game competing against the likes of Judd Trump.
Proud Laura revisits the Crucible for the first time since being seen on TV as a child in a tearful Higgins' arms after his 1982 World Snooker Championship win, and explains how her father made snooker popular.
The late snooker legend, nicknamed The Hurricane for his speed around the baize, died in 2010 aged 61 of throat cancer.
