Sky Bet

The hearing of the evidence in the first part of Stephen Lee's appeal against his 12-year ban from snooker has ended.

The 39-year-old from Trowbridge was given the suspension last September after being found guilty of seven charges of match-fixing dating back to 2008 and 2009.

A World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association statement read: "The hearing of the evidence in the first part of Stephen Lee's appeal has been concluded.

"The independent tribunal has risen to consider written submissions from the parties.

"No date has been set for the outcome. The tribunal has undertaken to deliver the outcome expeditiously."

The former world number five has protested his innocence throughout the investigation.
