Mark Williams vowed to perform naked cartwheels if he repeats his stunning Betfred World Championship triumph next year - after stripping off in celebration of his victory on Monday night. Last time I won it I think I had half a pint of milk and went to bed.
The 43-year-old walked into the press room wearing only a towel, which was removed when he sat on the chair.
However, Williams found something deep within himself to grind out a victory that makes him the oldest world champion since his fellow Welshman Ray Reardon in 1978.

And if he can somehow retain his title, the veteran has made an even bolder claim.
Higgins said: "I made it 17-16 but then he made one of the best breaks I've ever seen under pressure". "I'm going to keep my mouth shut next year, not say anything stupid and end up like this! I watched it in a caravan", Williams told BBC Sport.
Williams last World Championship came 15 years ago and he was clearly delighted to once again take home snooker's top prize and a record £425,000 in prize money. Last week he pledged to do the press conference fully nude if he won, as long as promoter Barry Hearn wasn't going to "fine [him] or discipline [him]".
Having finished runner-up to Selby previous year, Higgins becomes the first player to lose back-to-back finals since Jimmy White lost five in a row from 1990-94.
"It's an unbelievable story", he said. I've done something I never thought I'd do again'. The Welshman, however, held his nerve in the next frame, a break of 69 taking him over the line.
"Today I was 13-7 behind and I was anxious if I would take it to the fourth session, I didn't want to lose with a session to spare".
Note that Williams led to the confrontation with Higgins for much of the match. Higgins had not expected another chance but came back to the table and cleared up with a 65 break, vintage snooker from the four-time champion.
