Hearn slams Allen 'cheat' comments

Barry Hearn says Mark Allen will face a disciplinary process for comments made in the wake of his World Championship defeat by Cao Yupeng.

Allen accused his opponent of failing to declare a push shot during the game and added that it may be "a Chinese thing".

Hearn told BBC Radio Ulster's Talkback programme that players had to adhere to certain rules contained in their contracts and "effectively accusing an opponent of cheating is looked on as something that brings the game into disrepute".
