Essex snooker star Ali Carter has been diagnosed with lung cancer.
World Snooker has announced that the 34-year-old from Chelmsford will undergo a course of chemotherapy. He's twice been runner-up at the world championships.
Carter, who suffers from Crohn's disease, last year recovered from testicular cancer to resume his career.
World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association chairman Jason Ferguson said: "Ali is the toughest competitor I know and having spoken to him over the last few days I can assure everyone he has the fight to get through the battle ahead."
