Bond’s special mission delights snooker-mad Christine

Have your say

Snooker ace Nigel Bond took a break to visit a German fan who is in Sheffield’s Royal Hallamshire Hospital after being taken ill at the championships at the Crucible.

The former world finalist Nigel Bond called in to see Christine Pagel, who had to undergo an emergency operation for kidney stones.

Nigel said: “Christine has obviously been through a tough time and I hope she now makes a full recovery.” Snooker - page 41.
