James Wade has issued a message of thanks for the outpouring of support he has received in the last 48 hours.

The world number three, whose mental health issues have been well documented in recent years, was visibly unsettled during his World Grand Prix defeat against Colin Osborne on Tuesday evening.

Wade, who immediately flew back to the UK, was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, clinical depression and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder when he was admitted to The Priory Clinic in 2010.

He has continued to receive the necessary treatment to combat his illnesses ever since.

“I want to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to all of my fans and everyone who has supported me, especially since Tuesday,” said Wade, after online fan pages and social media sites were flooded with messages of concern and support.

“I am home now and getting the right help so I can focus on getting myself right for the remainder of the season.”
