Video: Ronnie O’Sullivan’s ‘foul-mouthed TV tirade’

The Rocket relieves interview boredom with lewd gestures and naughty words

It’s not often that a professional sportsman asks journalists if they would like to ‘nosh’ him during a press conference, but Rocket Ronnie went there at the China Open in Beijing on Wednesday.

This isn’t nearly as bad as the tabloids are making it out to be, most of the rudeness is muttered to the man sitting next to him, and would have gone over the heads of the majority of people in the room.

Skip to around (1.45) for the best bits.

    He looks like someone trimmed a chimp and stuck it in a press conference.

    It’s schoolboy stuff isn’t it? Thank fuck he can play snooker. He’d be signing on otherwise. Or doing PG Tips adverts.

    I think he is spot on. Being made to sit 7 and a half sodding minutes whilst you get stupid questions that come close to acusing him of throwing the match. The response are measured by any standard. Admittedly the nosh comment was silly but the audience didn’t notice and the poor guy looked bored senseless and was just messing about.

    I disagree. He is a professional and this sport made him a millionaire (spelling?) . Actually because people like you and me and all other people over the world are watching this sport.
    As a profesional you have to give back at least a little respect or better stop earning money with it
