    World champion Mark Selby joins us to talk glory, legacy and 'hurtful' Bingham criticism

    World champion Mark Selby joins us to talk glory, legacy and 'hurtful' Bingham criticism

    It's the last episode of series three of The Break and we were delighted to be joined by the newly crowned champion of the world, Mark Selby!
    It's been a remarkable 17 days at The Crucible and Selby joins Andy Goldstein for an in-depth chat about his fourth world title, some of the most significant moments along the way, and how many more titles he might be targeting by the end of his career...
    Selby also revealed he was hurt by Stuart Bingham's comments accusing him of "gamesmanship" after their semi-final and addressed the re-spot controversy from the final, saying he was unaware at the time that the cue ball was not in the correct position during the 20th frame as he escaped a snooker.
    Finally, Selby shows off the trophy to Andy and reveals that a replica from his first world title wasn't quite as impressive...
    Thanks for joining us for season three of The Break, which was produced and edited by Ola Fisayo. If you enjoyed our coverage of the World Championship, please rate and review us on your podcast platform of choice.

    ‘Kyren Wilson is going to be the new champion of the world’ – Jimmy White and Joe Johnson on Crucible memories and this year’s showdown

    ‘Kyren Wilson is going to be the new champion of the world’ – Jimmy White and Joe Johnson on Crucible memories and this year’s showdown

    Six-time Crucible runner-up Jimmy White is backing Kyren Wilson to win the World Championship after being impressed by his mentality in Sheffield. 
    Wilson, the only player left in the tournament who has not won the title, leads Shaun Murphy 10-6 after the second session in their best-of-33 encounter. Mark Selby is 9-7 ahead of Stuart Bingham in the other semi-final. 
    With pre-tournament favourites Judd Trump, Neil Robertson and Ronnie O’Sullivan already out in Sheffield, White believes it is the perfect opportunity for Wilson to strike.

    ‘No one enjoys playing in a bow tie’ - Mark Allen on snooker's need to modernise

    ‘No one enjoys playing in a bow tie’ - Mark Allen on snooker's need to modernise

    Mark Allen claims no snooker player wants to play in a waistcoat and bow tie as he urged the sport to catch up if it wanted a slice of the youth audience. 
    Professional snooker typically has a strict dress code – smart trousers and shoes, plus a long-sleeved shirt, waistcoat and bow tie – although it has been relaxed for some events, with the latter two items ditched for the Home Nations series. 
    World number one Judd Trump has previously suggested the sport is "stuck in a rut" and said one solution would be to allow players greater freedom in the clothing department. 
    The Break is presented by Andy Goldstein and produced by Ola Fisayo.

    The Australian is one of the favourites at the Crucible after some mesmeric displays this season, including titles at the UK Championship and Tour Championship.
    His lockdown haircut (or lack of one) has caught serious attention, while he also revealed how he made back-to-back 147s in training recently - and had the chance to make it three on the spin...

    'He's like a Michel Roux cake' - Ronnie on his rivals, and World title defence

    But first, Andy Neal Foulds and Philip Studd discuss what makes the Crucible such a special venue, and the World Championship such a magic event, before looking at some of the runner and riders.
    The Break is produced and edited by Ola Fisayo.
