    A bobos on the baize for three-time world snooker champion Mark Williams

    A bobos on the baize for three-time world snooker champion Mark Williams


    He's nodded off in his chair for what he claims is the first time in 30 years as a professional during a defeat at the UK Championship.

    The 46-year-old missed two tournaments after contracting Covid last month.

    Williams says he didn't have a clue where he was for about five seconds when his snore-off came to an abrupt end with the need to pot some balls.

    The Welshman says he really needs to play more morning matches.
