Ronnie O’Sullivan’s explicit reaction to an easy black miss spotted on camera

Ronnie O’Sullivanthe performance of was enough to do the job against David Gilbert in the world Billiards Championship, but it wasn’t without some classic demeanor from Ronnie O’Sullivan.

The Rocket came from behind to win 10-5 at the Crucible, but that being said, his performance will be remembered for other reasons.

At the time, O’Sullivan was making seven frames to five. He then lined up a routine black to continue a break.

Eventually, he was going to miss what looked like an easy pot.

It’s fair to say that Ronnie wasn’t shy when it came to sharing his frustration, making a rather X-rated expression under the table, but that was one the TV cameras picked up.

You can see his failure and reaction in the video below.

Despite his annoyance, O’Sullivan won the frame before sealing his place in the second round.

One of the greatest snooker players of all time is currently aiming for a record seventh world title.

It’s fair to say his rival Hossein Vafaei isn’t that impressed with O’Sullivan and has recently claimed he’s bad for the sport.

Speaking to the underground, Vafaei said: “A lot of things he says frustrate me. What kind of legend are you if you call people morons?

“I was and still am good friends with him, but I don’t like it. Maybe he likes it and gives him a good feeling but I think people should treat him like that too. I treat him as he deserves.

“Look, he doesn’t need to remind us that he’s won 20 major tournaments. I think someone next to him should remind him he’s Ronnie O’Sullivan.

“To be honest, Ronnie O’Sullivan without his team, without the people around him, he wouldn’t be here at all. He wouldn’t be here at all.

“He compares himself to someone else. He compares me to someone else. I do not like it. We don’t have to compare ourselves to others.

“He says you’re poor, I’m rich, I’m Ronnie O’Sullivan. I do not like it. I have money, my people in Iran have money, but we also have to respect human beings.

“I don’t really want to get involved in that kind of conversation. I like him a lot, I’m his fan, I like what he does but sometimes he’s disrespectful, he’s not good for the game.

“I think he should retire, to be honest with you. He should retire and then the younger generation will make the game bigger.
