Jimmy had one of those procedures to place a skin graft on his bald patch. These interventions rarely take and often make an unsightly scar. So yes he wears a wig.

If I’d read Jimmy White’s new autobiography before setting off to Leicester to meet him, I would have known to pack a toothbrush.

On the eve of publication, most authors follow a disciplined publicity schedule, and so I naively imagine that our interview will take place at 7pm as arranged.

But White approaches self-promotion with the same shambolic carelessness that characterised his snooker career.

Having finished his book by the time I arrive, I’m not the least surprised to learn that he is still somewhere on an unidentified motorway. Each time I call his mobile number (which ends 147147, of course) he is both charming and quite unflustered, and eventually we sit down together in the Holiday Inn bar a little before 11pm.

When he first electrified the stuffy world of snooker in the early 80s, winning the world title looked like a formality.

Fans fell in love with a recklessly daring working-class lad who’d been bunking off school since the age of nine to play in dodgy south London snooker dives. If only the renegade image had been a clever PR invention, White might well have won his first world championship final back in 1984.

World championship 

Jimmy White enjoyed a second straight whitewash victory in UK Championship qualifying courtesy of a 6-0 win against Mitchell Mann.

The 1992 champion White – who drubbed Brazil’s Victor Sarkis 6-0 on Saturday – will next face 2004 UK winner Stephen Maguire for a place in the final round of qualifying.

Marco Fu began his campaign with three centuries in a 6-2 win against Bai Langning.

After making a 147 in the final frame of his 6-5 win over John Higgins in the semi-finals of his home tournament last month, Fu compiled 57, 108, 124, 106 and 60 to run out a convincing winner against Bai.

He will meet Oliver Lines in the second round of qualifying on Monday afternoon.

2003 UK champion Matthew Stevens ended the hopes of Fu’s compatriot and three-time women’s world champion Ng On Yee with a 6-0 win.

The Welshman weighed in with breaks of 82, 86, 71 and 51 to secure a meeting with Champion of Champions semi-finalist Fan Zhengyi in the third qualifying round on Tuesday evening.
