Ronnie O'Sullivan and Gary Wilson's first round match at the World Snooker Championship at the weekend was briefly interrupted when a sleeping fan had to be removed from the Crucible.
O'Sullivan was leading the match 5-4 and was about to step to the table when both he and referee Brendan Moore turned in surprise after hearing the snoozing individual declare, 'Ahhh, fucking hell'.
Moore wasted little time having the man ejected from the venue.
It was a match certainly worthy of being awake for. After all, it did feature O'Sullivan, the sport's biggest draw. At that point in the match, the comeback was very much on for Wilson. Trailing 5-1 in the opening session, the Crucible debutant had pegged O'Sullivan back to 5-4.
Five-time World Champion O'Sullivan won the match 10-7 and will face Shaun Murphy in the next round.
