Snooker Bribe

If it is true that the current snooker world champion, John Higgins MBE, allegedly agreed to accept a bribe in order to deliberately lose four separate matches this year, such a shameful act would bring professional snooker into disrepute.

The World Snooker chairman, Barry Hearn, is quoted as saying: "If true, these allegations are a very serious matter indeed and a massive, massive blow to the integrity of the sport". He said an inquiry would be launched.

John Higgins reportedly has career winnings, to date, of £4.8M. Higgins was appointed MBE in the 2008 New Year Honours.

I find it all most deplorable.
