Selby Hopes Neck Injury Is Easing

Four-time World Champion Mark Selby revealed on Twitter that he is suffering from a bulging disc at the top of his spine, but hopes the injury is improving.

Selby tweeted: “The MRI scan came back Thursday evening, showing protruding disc C5 C6. Exactly same area as before. Seems to be easing a little compared to a week or so ago, so hope it’s going the right way. Good thing is I can still get down on the shot with less discomfort than I did in Germany so hopefully on the mend. More physio on Tuesday.”

In 2012, Selby struggled with the same injury. He withdrew from the China Open that year then played through pain at the World Championship, losing 10-3 to Barry Hawkins.
