Mark Williams Does Press Conference Naked After Winning World Championship

Mark Williams won the World Snooker Championship by defeating John Higgins at the Crucible on Monday night.

It's the third time the Welshman has won the championship. Though, it was the first time he has conducted the post-victory press conference wearing just a towel.

After defeating Robert Milkin in the second round, the 43-year-old - who is the oldest winner in 40 years - said that he would do the press conference naked if he claimed the title.

Nearly true to his world - he later disclosed that Barry Hearn ordered him to wear the towel - Williams strolled to the media room with some interesting tattoos on show.

"To be honest, a little bit uncomfortable at the minute," replied Williams to a journalist who asked how it felt to win his first World Championship in 15 years.

Williams had led the match 14-7 at one point only to see Higgins roar back to level it at 15-15, he would eventually win it 18-16.

And Williams has already made his promise, should he retain his title next year.

"To best honest, if I won this next year, I'd do it again. I'd cartwheel out there naked next year."
