    Frail Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins

    Ailing snooker legend Alex 'Hurricane' Higgins looked a shadow of his former self as he attended a charity fund-raiser in his honour yesterday.

    The 61-year-old, who won snooker's world title in 1972 and 1982, is has been been living on baby food after losing his teeth from radiotherapy while battling throat cancer.

    Bloody hell, I didnt recognise him. sad times :o(

    You posted it because it's shocking - the same reason the tabloids did. You want us to go 'eeww' like they did at the old freak shows.

    He looks horrendous, he's going to die soon - what conversation did you want to have?

    Did I even hint at that lol?

    Simply saying the thread is just to put that freak show picture out there (as FnF previously stated).

    that is what happens though when you drink and smoke to excess...

    real shame,a great entertainer in his time
