Snooker great Steve Davis has announced his retirement live on air ending his 38-year career that saw him win six world titles.
Davis, now 58, began his career in 1978 and was world number one from 1983 to 1990. He won a total of 28 ranking titles, placing him joint second on the all-time list with Ronnie O’Sullivan and John Higgins.
He lost on 10 April to Fergal O’Brien, failing to qualify to this year’s World Championship.
Davis told BBC Sport: "The Fergal O'Brien match was my last and I told Barry Hearn [Davis' manager] it was time to call it a day. My father passed away recently and it was natural time to stop playing.
"I should have done it ages ago; I played a bit for my father. I am delighted to have such a great time in the game. I was lucky to have a hobby as my profession.
"It has been a fantastic. The game will move on to other places but I feel like the grandfather of the sport."
Davis, who finished his career with a total of 355 century breaks, earned more than £5.5m in prize money and now spends this time as a music DJ.
