Fuss in the snooker world cup. Six-time world champion Ronnie O’Sullivan is under investigation for making a so-called “lewd gesture”.

The world number one qualified for the second round with a 10-5 victory over Dave Gilbert. On the way, The Rocket missed an easy black ball, after which he grumbled around the table to get back to his seat. In doing so, O’Sullivan made a gesture with his right hand, which was soon circulated on social media.
A World Snooker Tour spokesperson told Eurosport: “We are aware of this incident and have referred the matter to the Disciplinary Board.”
Fellow snooker player Matthew Sylt could not help but laugh: “What an ambassador,” he wrote the number 21 in the world through the video.

O’Sullivan will face Mark Allen (WS-15) in the eighth World Cup Finals. The 36-year-old Northern Irish defeated Scot Scott Donaldson (WS-49) in the first round 10-6. The Pistol was out of the morning session 5-4 and ran to 7-4 in session two before seeing Donaldson win two frames in a row. This was for the 28-year-old Scot. Allen took breaks 80, 61, 107, 109, 57, 54 and 52.
In the next round (best of 25), Allen faces a tough task against opponent Ronnie O’Sullivan. Allen knows that “Making the most of every opportunity will be me.” Luckily I’m good at it. It will definitely be difficult, but on the day I think it is impossible, I will stop.”
