Yes, he hasn’t Tweeted in over a month & he’s usually fairly active on that platform.

Sad news indeed.

Very sad to see at a relatively young age of 66.

Hopefully he can continue to watch and understand live snooker when it returns and it goes some way to boosting his spirits

Self-inflicted?

Self-inflicted?


Meant the gambling, eating and drinking over the years which has no doubt contributed to the situation in which he finds himself in. Not the cancer obviously.

This is an incredibly crass comment. Leukemia has no definitive causes.

Whilst it's true that Willie hasn't led the 'cleanest' of lifestyles' that doesn't make him dying of a cancer that may have been aggravated by that self-inflicted, his lifestyle has never been the most considerate of his own health but even with that being so, no-one deserves to die of any former of cancer and 66 is pretty damn young for that to catch up with you.

Indeed. I apologise if my previous comment came across as callous. Language barriers can be a lovely lady sometimes.

Kent isn't that far from Paris. It is the type of distance that Dominic Cummings would drive to test to see if his eyes were okay for a longer journey.

Yes, because other people thinking I legally changed my name to 'HustleKing' is not embarrassing at all

I miss talk of flat back packs :-)

I just messaged him on twitter, asks if he needs anything

That's kind :hatoff:
