Couldn't agree more. I was shocked when I saw the news. I had no idea his condition was life threatening at this point. I had no idea either that he had a child less than one year old, which is the worst bit. RIP Paul.

I am truely shocked and saddened with the news. I had thought that he was doing well in his fight but i guess not. Its just not right that he's died so early in life and he surely would have won a world championship if it was not for cancer.

Great sportsman who always played with a smile on his face. Immense loss to snooker and sport in general.

I agree. This was actually quite a big shock to me as I woke up to the news. I remember seeing him playing recently and thinking to myself, he must have got over the worst of it. How brave of him to play on even whilst in pain. It's a great tragedy and a loss to snooker worldwide.sadface RIP

I was really shocked and upset too to hear this news this morning. I had cancer at 24 (10 years ago) and recovered. Having also lost my Mum to the desease I am always aware how short life is. For some reason Paul was such a heroic and talented player that I couldn't imagine he would lose this battle. So very sad.

As a young man also battling with cancer, Paul Hunter has been quite an inspiration for me. I hadn't realised his condition had detoriated in such a bad way. RIP.

Paul Hunter was the "Beckham of the Baize" and it is a tragic loss for his family and all who knew him. RIP Paul, you was a genuine guy. Alan, Chesterfield

Snooker has lost a great talent and a very amiable personality in Paul Hunter. My thoughts go out to his family, friends and anyone else affected by this tragic loss.

only seldom can you use the phrase "the light that shines twice as bright, burns half as long" but in Pauls case it is entirely appropriate. a star in all meanings of the word and a tragic loss to sport

Shocking and sad news. Paul was a great player and person. Snooker is at a loss.
Itís just not right that he's died so early in life and he surely would have won a world championship if it was not for cancer. RIP Paul and my sympathies are with his wife, his daughter and the rest of his family.

My Nomination for the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year Award has to go to the sadly departed Paul Hunter. To battle on with the game he loved, as he did in this years World Championship, whilst facing up to such a terrible illness is the most heroic thing seen in any sporting arena this year.
My thoughts go out to his wife and family at this sad time.

Absolutely shocked and gutted when I heard the news about Paul.

It is so very, very sad. Seemed like one of the characters and always had a smile on his face, whatever he was going through.

What a great loss to the sport. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

RIP Paul.
