Ken Doherty: My Perfect Player - The Darlin' of Dublin shares his picks

Ken Doherty constructs his Perfect Player (credit: Tom Shaw/Getty Images)

We ask players to name who they believe to be the best fit for each part of the body from head to toe - thus, constructing the perfect Snooker player. During the Masters, 1997 World champion and BBC analyst Ken Doherty stopped by at the laboratory...

Who has the best HAIR?
"Definitely not Neil Robertson or Mark Williams! Mark Selby's got the 1950s quiff going on, so I might give it to him."

Who has the best SNOOKER BRAIN?
"Not Michael Holt! I'll say John Higgins."

Who has the best PERSONALITY?
"I like Joe Swail - he's a bit mad, likes a drink and a laugh but, unfortunately, he supports Liverpool."

Who has the best TEMPERAMENT?
"Stephen Hendry has the best that I've witnessed."

Who has the best WAISTCOATS?
"John Virgo's waistcoats were a sight to behold and I used to like Tony Drago's. Jimmy White wears some nice ones - he's a got a bit of style with the gangster-style double-breasted ones like Al Capone, so I'll say him."

Mark Selby (R) has the best hair and trousers, according to Doherty (Tom Shaw/Getty Images)
Who has the best RIGHT ARM?
"That has to be Ronnie O'Sullivan."

Who has the best LEFT ARM?
"That would be Judd Trump."

Who has the best CUE ACTION?
"Neil Robertson's got the best cue action."

Who has the best TROUSERS?
"Mark Selby's always quite smart."

Who has the best SHOES?
"Shaun Murphy - he's got a few different coloured ones, so I'll give it to him."
