TWO-TIMES World Championship finalist Ali Carter has told snooker fans he plans to return to the game soon after completing chemotherapy for lung cancer.

Carter, who reached the Crucible final in 2008 and 2012, has not played any snooker since it was announced he had been diagnosed with the life-threatening condition back in May.

But after months of chemotherapy, Carter wrote on Twitter today (Tuesday) he was feeling much better and was planning his return to the baize.

“I have finished my chemotherapy and things are really positive,” he wrote to his more than 34,000 followers.

“I’m feeling much better and it won’t be long ’till I’m back playing again. Missed it big time. #perspective #beatingcancer.”

Winner of three ranking titles, Carter has not played since losing to eventual winner Mark Selby in the second round of this year’s World Championship.

The video below shows Carter making a superb 147 at the Crucible in 2008 – one of his finest snooker moments.
