Snooker player Ali Carter confirms that he has finished chemotherapy treatment and things look "positive" as he continues his battle with lung cancer.

Snooker player Ali Carter has revealed that life is looking "positive" now that he has finished chemotherapy treatment after being diagnosed with lung cancer in May.

The two-time World Snooker Championship runner-up was struck with the illness a year after recovering from testicular cancer.

The 35-year-old stepped away from the sport to focus on his health, but has now expressed his desire to return.

Carter wrote on Twitter: "Hi people, not been on here much, been busy getting myself better! I have now finished my chemotherapy and things are really positive!

"I'm feeling much better and it won't be long till I'm back playing again!! Missed it big time..#perspective #beatingcancer."

Carter has won the 2009 Welsh Open, 2010 Shanghai Masters and 2013 German Masters in his career so far.
