The 2013 snooker world championship belonged to Ronnie O'Sullivan. Every aspect of O'Sullivan was on show, from his audacious shot making to his colourful personality. To mark the conclusion of the tournament we put together a list of 5 memorable moments from the tournament. Unsurprisingly O'Sullivan features heavily.

O'Sullivan get in trouble for making a "lewd" gesture


The match referee reprimanded O'Sullivan for making what she called "a lewd gesture". O'Sullivan claimed he was just checking his cue. A decent attempt at an excuse but c'mon Ronny, we al know what you were doing.

A Kerry and a Leitrim jersey make appearances at the Crucible

We've seen them at Augusta and at post-Stanley Cup riots and now the snooker world championship. The GAA jersey is making serious inroads into its bucket list.


A very loud fart

That is what is so good about about sporting events in a small auditorium, any farting will be ruthlessly exposed and mocked. In fairness to Trump, he had a sense of humour about it.


This fantastic trick shot


Barry Hawkins earned a lot of plaudits for giving O'Sullivan a good game in the final and this trick shot was one thing that certainly caught the eye (17 mins in). Tactical battles turn many casual fans off snooker so seeing an ambitious trick shot like this come off was a welcome sight.


O'Sullivan's post match interview


That one liner sums up O'Sullivan as both a player and a person: exciting, unpredictable and entertaining.
