Stephen Hendry dominated the game of snooker in his prime. He won the World Championship in 1990 at just 21 years of age, a record that still stands today.
The Scotsman played on for a further 27 years and in that time he topped the world rankings for eight consecutive seasons, won seven world title wins, six Masters titles and five UK Championships. Dubbed the ‘King of the Crucible’, Stephen changed the game and many would argue that he is the greatest snooker player of all time.
Stephen retired in 2012 and became a regular face of BBC’s snooker coverage,
but now, after an eight-year absence, he will return to snooker’s main circuit.
