A post mortem into the death of the much respected snooker coach Steve Prest has found he died of peritonitis, a burst appendix.
Steve had gone to hospital complaining of a pain in his stomach but doctors apparently discharged him.
He died on Friday, May 30 at the age of 43.
Steve's funeral was held yesterday and was attended by a number of prominent snooker personalities, including Shaun Murphy, Peter Ebdon, Willie Thorne, Joe Johnson, Mike Hallett and members of the Yorkshire snooker community.
Prest had coached Murphy during the build up to his 2005 Crucible triumph and was also with Ronnie O'Sullivan and Neil Robertson during the World Championship this year.
