Written 3 weeks ago by Newsroom


Snooker legend Ronnie O’Sullivan says he wouldn’t have played the sport if he had his time all over again.

He says he was ‘addicted’ to the sport and didn’t have a healthy relationship with it.

Five-time world champion O’Sullivan suffered a shock first round defeat by James Cahill at the Crucible this year

Speaking to Radio 4 ‘The Rocket” spoke candidly about his relationship to the game;

“I think the western world has become a world of addiction. We live such a hectic fast-paced life; everyone gets on top of each other, trying to climb that ladder.

“I’ve probably trampled on people – not in a horrible way, but in my pursuit to be the best.”
