Snooker player Ali Carter has been diagnosed with a form of lung cancer.

The two-time World Championship runner-up, who suffers from Crohn’s disease, will undergo a course of chemotherapy, World Snooker announced.

Carter 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.

Ferguson added: ‘I know that the world will be looking forward to Ali returning to action and I am sure that all of our friends, fans and partners will join with me in wishing Ali a full recovery.’

Carter lost to Ronnie O’Sullivan in each of his Crucible finals, in 2008 and 2012.
