Ronnie O'Sullivan Continues To Take The Absolute Piss With BBC And ITV

Ronnie O'Sullivan Continues To Take The Absolute Piss With BBC And ITV
By PJ Browne Updated

Judd Trump eliminated Ronnie O'Sullivan from the Players Championship at the quarter-final stage this week, winning their match 5-3.

In the post-match interview on ITV and later in an interview with the BBC, O'Sullivan continued his recent attitude towards answering questions.

The five-time world champion either refuses to engage with questions or completely takes the piss. It's an approach which O'Sullivan adopted last month following a disciplinary letter from World Snooker for criticising a referee and swearing in a post-match press conference.

In a blog post for Eurosport, O'Sullivan explained that he felt he was being treated differently to other players and has often been fined more than others for similar offences. The 41-year-old said he would no longer be putting his head 'on the chopping block' by talking about snooker in interviews.

Speaking to Phil Yates on ITV after his loss to Trump, all O'Sullivan wanted to talk about was his waistcoat.

In an interview with BBC Wales, O'Sullivan kept his answers short before singing a few lines of Wonderwall.

After beating Liang Wenbo earlier in the week, the world number 14 was a tad more engaging. However, he still seemed more interested in talking about what he had for breakfast and his run that day than the actual snooker.
