World Billiards has received a letter from Mike Russell in which he apologises unreservedly to anyone he has offended in the past. He has accepted that his behaviour and attitude have been unacceptable, and that his social media comments were, at times, defamatory and inappropriate.
He has given undertakings to change his behaviour and attitude during events, and to cease the undesirable social media postings.
World Billiards has accepted his apology and his undertakings about future behaviour. We will accept his entry to World Billiards events, effective immediately.
