The British tourist found unconscious in a ditch in the Banglamung area of Thailand has been named as 30 year old former Scottish Open snooker champion David Gray.

A local Thai newspaper reported that the Chiswick resident and regular practice partner of Jimmy White, found himself waking up on a hospital trolley on Tuesday 6th October after being discovered unconscious wearing only his underwear by locals.

On questioning at the hospital, Gray said that he could not remember what happened; only that he had been drinking with friends, before he blacked out and the rest is a complete mystery.

He was given a check up and then allowed to rest before doctors discharged him from the hospital.

Gray’s Management group, 110sport issued a statement saying "Reports are still a bit sketchy as to what actually happened with David. But these are highly irregular circumstances for anyone to find themselves in - especially a professional sportsman visiting a foreign country.

"Naturally we are concerned about David. I think it only right to hear David's version of events and try to piece together the full picture before taking the next step.

"David is a hugely talented player and has to give himself every chance of getting back to where he once was in the game. And the first move to achieving that might be confronting any problems he might have."
