World number one Mark Selby says he cannot believe he has joined snooker’s greats by claiming back-to-back World Championship titles at the Crucible.

Selby, 33, became only the fourth player after Steve Davis, Stephen Hendry and Ronnie O’Sullivan to retain their crown in the modern era.

“I’m speechless to be in that group, wow,” he told BBC Sport after fighting back to beat John Higgins 18-15.
