A sporting legend was spotted in a Glasgow Italian restaurant recently.

Snooker great John Higgins dined at Massimo's in the city's Baillieston on Sunday. 

The team took to social media to share their excitement at hosting John, who has won over 30 professional titles.

They wrote: "Delighted to welcome Scottish snooker legend John Higgins who popped in for some Sunday lunch!"

Customers were delighted to see a famous face in their local eatery, with one writing: "Great pic."

Another said: "He knows great food and service."

A third chimed: "Looking great John, you made a good choice - a lovely restaurant with great food."
