World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn: 'We will catch all cheats'

World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn insists that all cheats will be caught after Stephen Lee was found guilty of match-fixing.

World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn has insisted that all cheats will be caught following Stephen Lee's match-fixing controversy.

The former world number five was found guilty by an independent tribunal in Bristol of fixing seven matches between 2008 and 2009.

"The message is 'we can't stop you but we are going to catch you'," Hearn told BBC Radio Five Live.

Lee could be handed a lifetime ban when his punishment is announced on September 24.
