MARK SELBY is only going to spend a tenner on a car following his latest Crucible world title.

Three years ago he splashed out prize money on a £215,000 Lamborghini Huracan.

But after winning £500,000 with his 18-15 victory over Shaun Murphy on Monday, he will place an order for a toy version for his daughter, Sofia.

Four-time world-beater Selby, 37, said: “Sofia was absolutely hysterical before I went away to the Worlds because my wife Vikki was coming with me.

“I said, ‘Look, mummy will come with daddy to give him some company. When I’m back, I’ll take you to the toy shop’.

“She wants a remote-controlled toy car and a doll. One is about £2.49, the car is about £10 — bless her, she said if it’s too expensive, she’ll choose something else.”

Whenever Selby is crowned world champ, it often happens as his team Leicester are celebrating.

In 2014, his maiden crown came as they won promotion to the Prem.

Two years later, he won a second the same night Claudio Ranieri’s side defied 5,000-1 title odds.

And a week on Saturday, Brendan Rodgers’ troops face Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley…


Selby, who is pals with Jamie Vardy, said: “Let’s hope, having done my job, the boys will do theirs.

“I’ve asked about tickets. They’re like gold dust.

“If I have to pay a few grand, it’s worth it — an FA Cup final, they might never get there again.”
