Sad, but he was really ill and looked absolutely awful and unrecognisable the last time I saw him in the news. Such a shame.

Was it due to smoking?

Mad as a box of frogs,but a great showman-made possibly the greatest break under pressure ever seen in his semi final with jimmy white in 1982.

The snooker stablishment HATED him,but he made the game a tv phenomenon. Nowadays all we have is boring,mineral water sipping robots. Higgins was a legend. Sadly,just like gazza he drank/gambled it all away. Snooker would never have reached the audiences it did in the 80s/90s,if it wasnt for alex.

A friend of mine used to run a pub in Denton, Manchester where Alex occasionally called in for a drink. Very sad news this but not surprising i'm afraid . RIP Alex .

I've got a piece of chalk he flicked to me (threw at?) 20-odd years ago outside the Royal Exchange. He was my hero at the time.
Only Ronnie O'sullivan can touch him for natural talent.
RIP Alex.
