Snooker legend Willie Thorne has called for Stephen Lee to be banned for ‘at least five years’ after being found guilty of match-fixing.

An independent tribunal concluded this week that the 38-year-old was guilty of match-fixing charges relating to seven matches between 2008 and 2009.

A World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association hearing will take place on September 24 to decide on the punishment for Lee and Thorne told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “I think it has got to be at least five years. We have got to get a ban that makes players think twice about it.”
