Snooker: Johnson slips up.

JOE JOHNSON, the former world snooker champion, may be forced to retire after suffering the worst break of his career.

The star, who won the Snooker World Championship in 1986, says he may have to put his comeback on ice - permanently - after falling and breaking his leg.

Johnson moved to Cawood near Selby around six months ago and was at home last Saturday when he slipped down some steps and broke his ankle in three places.

He said: "I have had to have surgery and it is very painful. The worst thing is I will probably have to retire."
