RIP Alex

Sad news although not at all surprised considering the lifestyle he led. IIRC he was talking about a comeback only about a month ago.

RIP Hurricane.

I know he wasn't the nicest of characters but I loved watching him playing snooker. Saw a photo of him in the paper the other month and he was unrecognisable. RIP Alex

One of my sporting heroes, he did more to make the game popular as a TV sport than anyone else.

He was involved in the 2 greatest matches I have seen beating Jimmy White in the '82 world semi and coming back to beat Steve Davis in a major final after being 7-0 down.

Unfortunately his private life was a mess and effected his game.

He actually lived longer than I ever thought he would considering his lifestyle.

RIP Alex.
