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.
"I am officially retired now from tournament snooker," he said. "I made the decision about three months ago."
The 43-year-old handed defending champion John Higgins his worst World Championship defeat in the last 16.
But Hendry looked out of sorts against Maguire in a one-sided World Championship quarter-final.
