Jimmy White put a career of Crucible misery behind him to claim the World Seniors Snooker Championship in Sheffield.

The 57-year-old beat former world No 8 Darren Morgan 5-3 to claim his second World Seniors title, but 2019 marked the first time the event was held at the Crucible.

The venue was the scene of White’s six World Championship final defeats in the 1980s and ’90s, and the ‘Whirlwind’ said after his victory: “It sounds strange to be world champion at the Crucible.” He also tweeted: “Got there in the end”.
