The 39-year-old is due before magistrates in Swindon, Wiltshire later this month.

The former world number five has been charged in relation to the sale of a snooker cue.

A Wiltshire Police spokeswoman said: "Wiltshire Police can confirm that 39-year-old Stephen Lee, of Birch Gardens, Trowbridge has today been charged with fraud by false representation.

"He has been bailed to appear at Swindon Magistrates' Court on May 28 2014."
