Steve Davis


Steve Davis, OBE (born 22 August 1957) is a retired English professional snooker player from Plumstead, London.


He dominated the sport during the 1980s, when he reached eight World Snooker Championship finals in nine years, won six world titles, and held the world number one ranking for seven consecutive seasons.


He was the first player to make an officially recognised maximum break in professional competition (at the 1982 Classic) and also the first player to earn over £1 million in prize money.


The BBC named Davis its Sports Personality of the Year in 1988, and he remains the only snooker player ever to win the award.
