Ronnie: five hilarious moments

Rocket amuses & frustrates in equal measure
Ronnie O’Sullivan’s time at the top of snooker is fading. The 41-year-old Englishman spoke to the press recently, in his normal voice, about what he wants to achieve in the game before calling it a day. Following another bust-up with the sport’s authorities, that end could come sooner rather than later.
Threatening to throw the towel in, Rocket accused World Snooker of bullying following his first-round win at the World Championship this week, an accusation Barry Hearn said was completely unfounded. Five-time world champion Ronnie is making enemies in the sport he has made his own, but it has not always been that way. He loves a strop, fair enough, and doesn’t need asking twice before causing a scene, but the man is comedy gold, and those at the top know what a loss he would be to the game in this country.
