THURSDAY, April 29, 2021

Thailand’s snooker champion Prapruet “Rom Surin” Chaitanasakun tested positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday.

The 59-year-old recently posted a video clip saying he was waiting at home for officials to take him to hospital. He said his symptoms – cough and loss of taste – have improved thanks to the medicines his daughter brought him.

“My spirits are still high, and I will do my best to start training as soon as possible,” he said.

Later, another Thai snooker star James “Tong Sitchoi” Wattana called on the authorities to take Prapruet to hospital as soon as possible as he was having breathing problems.

James also urged people to be careful and pay attention to their health, so the country can overcome this crisis.

Meanwhile, the Billiard Sports Association of Thailand said of the 25 snooker players who took the second Covid-19 test on Monday, Prapruet was the only one who tested positive.

“The rest of the players will continue training for the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games and SEA Games," the association said.
