Steve Davis, the interesting six-time winner of Snooker's World Championships, has finally decided to hang up his cue and call it quits after his humiliating first round 10-8 defeat at the hands of Stuart Bingham.
Davis, 50, had been 8-3 down, but rallied late on after many of the spectators began heckling him. One of them called him "an idiot" after he missed an easy red during the 11th frame.
The ginger-haired ex-supremo, who used to be mockingly known as Steve "Interesting" Davis, due to his lack of interestingness, has found a new career as a pundit, and says he doesn't need the hassle of consistently getting beaten by nobodies every time he enters a competition.
Speaking after his defeat, Davis told fellow pundit John Parrot:
"I'm fed up of being beaten by nobodies, and I can't stand Sheffield."
