Stephen Lee admits charge of fraud relating to snooker cue

Banned snooker player Stephen Lee admits to fraud in relation to the sale of his snooker cue.

Banned snooker player Stephen Lee has admitted to a charge of fraud relating to the sale of his snooker cue.

The former world number five, who lost his appeal against a 12-year ban for match-fixing last month, has been fined £1,815.

According to Sky Sports News, Swindon Crown Court heard that Lee failed to send the cue to a fan in Hong Kong, despite the individual paying money into the bank account of the snooker player's wife.

Lee, who was fined an additional £35,000 following a £40,000 sanction when he was banned for match-fixing, arranged to sell the snooker cue via Facebook.
