BEIJING - Chinese snooker player Xiao Guodong said his team had lodged a complaint against English Peter Lines, saying the latter cursed and threatened him following a Northern Ireland Open qualifier on Thursday.

Lines came to Xiao's dressing room after losing the match 4-3 and "hurled invective" at the Chinese, according to a statement Xiao posted on social media on Friday.

"Though my English is not good, but I still could make out what you said," Xiao said in the statement.

Xiao also published part of his team's complaint against the English player.

"Xiao brought us to the attention that Peter was using swear words &was also threatening Xiao to step outside the arena for a fight in front of the referee which is not acceptable and quite intimidating for a player who is coming from a different country," it read.

"In fact it was the security guy that stopped Peter from doing worse," it added.
