Kettering's Kyren Wilson is ready to travel to India next week after being given the all-clear by his doctor

The Kettering snooker star was forced to pull out of the first ranking event of the new season – the Riga Masters – last week due to a potential blood clot in his left leg, which prevented him from travelling to Latvia.

However, the 24-year-old revealed on social media earlier this week that he has now been cleared to travel by his doctor.

Wilson, who is currently ranked 16 in the world, enjoyed a breakthrough season last year as he won his first ranking title when he was victorious in the Shanghai Masters in September.
