Snooker authorities said the 12-year match-fixing ban handed to Stephen Lee will be backdated to October 2012.
This means the 38-year-old will not be allowed to play professional snooker until October 2024, effectively ending his sporting career.
Lee, the former world number five, was found guilty of match-fixing charges relating to seven matches in 2008 and 2009.
