World Snooker Championship 2018: John Higgins to face Mark Williams in final

Four-time winner John Higgins reached the World Championship final for the seventh time, setting up a meeting with two-time champion Mark Williams.

Higgins also reached the showpiece in Sheffield last year, when he was beaten by world number one Mark Selby.

The Scot secured his place in this year's final by beating Kyren Wilson 17-13, while Williams edged to a late-night 17-15 triumph over Barry Hawkins

The final at the Crucible starts on Sunday at 14:00 BST and ends on Monday.

Higgins, 42, or Williams, 43, will be the oldest winner since Welshman Ray Reardon, who was 45 when he triumphed in 1978.

Both players are part of snooker's 'class of '92' - turning professional that year along with five-time world champion Ronnie O'Sullivan.
