Snooker: Champ Joe bows out.

JOE Johnson, the 1986 title-holder, made the alarm bells ring for Ian McCulloch before bowing out of the Embassy World Championship qualifiers in Blackpool last night.

Johnson, at 50 the oldest player on the circuit, recovered from 6-1 down to 6-6 before losing 10-7 - and a fire alarm stopped play for five minutes.
