Snooker ace Mark Williams was forced to play commando after a nasty bout of food poisoning meant he had to dump his boxer shorts in the bin.

Williams bowed out of the UK Championship after losing 6-3 to the impressive Jamie Clarke. However, that was not the only thing he lost as a funny tummy caused him to toss his own underwear into the bin, during the contest.

It very quickly became obvious Williams was in a spot of bother, when he had to make a very quick dash out of the arena in the first frame. Unfortunately, as his composure began to seep out of him, the mistakes set in to his game.

“That was probably the worst I have ever felt, trying to play a snooker match,” the 47-year-old said. “If it wasn’t such a big tournament, I don’t think I would have come back out after the interval.

“I started the match with a pair of boxer shorts and by frame three I didn’t have them any more. If you see a pair in the bin, they’re mine.”

Williams is the latest big name to exit the UK Championship early. Zhao Xintong, John Higgins, and Neil Robertson were knocked out within the first three days in York.

And a heartbroken and most likely embarrassed Williams could not hide his disappointment. “I have been playing really well in practice, but I couldn’t play tonight,” Williams added.

“I was shaking, shivering, boiling hot one frame and freezing cold the next. I tried, but I knew I had no chance.

“I can’t even go home tonight because I’d need about 20 stops on the motorway. I’ll have to wait until the morning.”
