Murphy 'left for dead' by school bullies

Former world champion Shaun Murphy tells BBC Radio Sheffield how he was bullied and “left for dead” while at high school in Northamptonshire.

The 36-year-old speaks about how he was "singled out" for abuse because of his profile as a talented young snooker player, the incident that led to him leaving school aged 13, and how those experiences have been used as motivation during his snooker career.
