Carter promises to carry on playing

World Snooker Championship runner-up Ali Carter promises he will carry on with his career after losing to Ronnie O'Sullivan at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.

The 32-year-old fell to 17th in the world rankings following a year disrupted by Crohn's disease - the illness he has lived with for 10 years - and had considered retirement.

Carter lost 18-11 on Monday night but told BBC Sport he feels he can still win a world title - joking that it would be an easier task if O'Sullivan retired.
