England´s Judd Trump defeated John Higgins 18-9 to win snooker´s World Championship final at Sheffield´s Crucible Theatre on Monday.
Victory gave Trump, beaten in the 2011 final by Scotland´s Higgins, his maiden world title and saw him join the list of snooker players to have completed a career Grand Slam following previous successes in the UK Championship and Masters tournaments.
Higgins´s defeat meant the four-time world champion had now lost the last three Crucible finals. Trump was on the brink of victory at 16-9 when Monday´s evening session got underway and the 29-year-old made quick work of securing the two frames he required to be crowned champion with breaks of 94 and 62.
