Former World No 5 Stephen Lee was found guilty of fixing seven snooker matches yesterday. England's Lee could face a lifetime ban after the verdict was confirmed by Nigel Mawer, the chairman of the disciplinary committee of the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association (WPSBA).

The 38-year-old’s sanction will be announced at a separate hearing on September 24. Lee was charged following an investigation into eight matches — four at the Malta Cup in 2008, two at the UK Championship 2008, and one each at the China Open in 2009 and the World Championship the same year.
