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. The most decorated overseas player in history, Neil Robertson offers his head-to-toe picks…

Who has the best HAIR?“Apart from me, of course, I’d say Oliver Lines – you can tell he puts a lot of work into it, getting the hairdryer out and putting every hair in the perfect position.”

Who has the best SNOOKER BRAIN?“I’d probably have to give it to Mark Selby. He knows his way around the table better than anyone, especially getting out of snookers – he can turn a defensive situation into an attacking one that way.”

Who has the best PERSONALITY?“I’ll say Jimmy White – whenever you talk to him, he can always make you laugh talking about the stories of how things were in the 80s. It’s always a positive conversation with him and I’ll always have time for him.”

Who has the best TEMPERAMENT?“I’ll try not to put myself in these as much as possible! I’ll say John Higgins – he’s the best player I’ve ever seen coming from behind in a match and, no matter what happens, he always seems to put it behind him and move on quickly.”

Judd Trump has the best waistcoat, according to Robertson (Dan Mullan/Getty Images)

Who has the best WAISTCOATS?“I think Judd Trump’s got a really cool one – the grey one with the black stripe down the back.

Who has the best RIGHT ARM?“Ronnie O’Sullivan.”

Who has the best LEFT ARM?“I’ll say me!”

Who has the best CUE ACTION?“Not putting myself in that, I’ll say Shaun Murphy – it’s definitely the most rhythmical.”

Who has the best TROUSERS?“Definitely not Mark Selby because, when he plays a shot, his trousers almost rise up to his knees! Shaun Murphy always looks really sharp, so we’ll go with him.”

Who has the best SHOES?“Luca Brecel – I think his pink studs look really nice.”
