Mark Selby - Life Of A World Champion is a profile of the Crucible king and world number one. Sky spent several months on the tour with Selby, looking at the life of a professional snooker player and some of the challenges faced on the global circuit.

 

Selby grew up in tough surroundings. Raised by his Dad, on a council estate with very little money, he spent every possible moment in the snooker club - even playing it for his PE lessons. His Dad died when he was 16, and at his hospital bedside, Mark promised him he'd be World Champion. Two months later he turned professional - and 15 years later he fulfilled his promise with an astonishing victory over Ronnie O'Sullivan. By his own admission, Selby wasn't the most naturally talented player, but an incredible determination - born of his hard upbringing - meant he could reach the very top of his sport.
