Embassy World Championship from the Crucible Theatre,
Sheffield. The first of 17 days of competition sees Scotland's

White also begins his campaign for that elusive first World title later today. Hendry's first-round opponent is England's Danny Fowler while White faces talented youngster Joe Swail in the clash of the two former English amateur champions.

World Championships from
Birmingham. The competition builds to a climax with the apparatus finals taking place today and tomorrow. British champion Neil Thomas had high hopes of reaching this afternoon's men's floor final and emulating his performance in the last World
Championships in Indianapolis, when he became the first
Briton to qualify for an individual final at this level.
The floor exercise was one of only two disciplines which
Vitaly Scherbo failed to win at last year's Olympics. But he did triumph on the rings and pommel horse, which are also contested today. Plus action from the women's vault and asymmetrical bars.
With commentary by Barry Davies , Mitch Fenner and Christine Still.
Bob Wilson and Alan Hansen reflect on the effect of the busy Easter programme on the three-horse race for the FA
