Alan McManus survived a late surge from John Higgins to win 10-7 and reach the last 16 of the Dafabet World Championship. Veteran McManus won a match at the Crucible for the first time since 2005 by knocking out friend and practice partner Higgins, the four-time champion. The 43-year-old goes through to meet 44-year-old Ken Doherty in a second round match between the two oldest players in the tournament.
