      Stephen Hendry retires after World Snooker Championship defeat
      Seven-time world champion Stephen Hendry has announced his retirement from snooker after a heavy 13-2 defeat by Stephen Maguire at the Crucible.
      The 43-year-old, who looked out of sorts against Maguire in a one-sided World Championship quarter-final, said he made the decision three months ago.
      He said: "There's a few reasons - the schedule, the fact I'm not playing the snooker I want to play, and the fact I'm not enjoying practice.
      "It was quite an easy decision."

      Oh wow, I saw earlier that he wasn't doing too well in the quarter finals but I didn't expect this. He is a great player and I have spent many years watching him, played some really great matches in this years World Championship too.

      He was going to retire win or lose just a shame it was such a heavy loss.

      Very sad news, possibly the greatest player to ever play the game.
