Inside Snooker and the whole of the sport wishes popular referee Leo Scullion the very best as he continues his battle with lung cancer. Thankfully treatment is proving successful, and he is targeting a resumption of his duties with World Snooker as soon as possible.

The Scottish official was diagnosed several months ago but wanted to keep his illness low key in the initial stages of treatment. Fellow referees Jan Verhaas and Olivier Marteel went to visit Leo in Glasgow last week, and found him in good spirits and looking and feeling better.

There will be plenty of people looking forward to sharing a pint once again with Leo after work in the Graduate in Sheffield next spring, if not sooner. All the best and get well soon, Leo.
