STUART BINGHAM says it was a great honour to get an invite to this year’s star-studded BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards in Belfast.

Athletics hero Jessica Ennis-Hill, newly-crowned Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton and tennis world No 2 Andy Murray are among the favourites to win the coveted prize at the SSE Arena on Sunday, December 20.

But Bingham, whose fairytale world title win at the Crucible in May captured the imagination of the British sporting public, says he would love to be in the running for an award not won by a snooker pro since Steve Davis’ success 27 years ago.

STUART BINGHAM warmed up for his latest challenge in China with a week of exhibitions in England.

The world champion entertained fans at the opening of a new private snooker room in Harlow on Thursday (Oct 15) before playing ex-pro John Astley in a swanky-do at the Marriott Hotel in Newcastle on Saturday evening.

Ball-run says he is now looking forward to jetting off for China on Monday on route to face 19-year-old Steven Hallworth in the opening round of the International Championship in Daqing on Sunday, November 1.

Hallworth, from Skellingthorpe, only turned pro last year and had to qualify but world No 2 Bingham says he will not be taking the teenager lightly at the third ranking tournament of the season where the winner will take home £125,000.

STUART BINGHAM was thrilled to see his stablemate Rory McLeod claim his first ranking title - despite his own early exit from the tournament in Germany.

World No 61 McLeod, who is 44-years-old and snooker's only black professional, beat China's Tian Pengfei in the final of the Rhur Open on Sunday, October 12.

Bingham lost his opening match 4-3 against Ireland's Fergal O'Brien but still had something to celebrate when McLeod (right), who also works with SightRight coach Stephen Feeney, triumphed at the European Tour event.
