Ronnie O'Sullivan's Reaction To Being Interrupted By 'Disco Inferno' Is All-Time

Ronnie O'Sullivan cemented his legacy as arguably the greatest snooker player fo all time over the weekend.

And the 44-year-old also cemented his legacy as the athlete with possibly the shortest fuse in all of sports.

O'Sullivan wasn't too happy when 'Disco Inferno' was played after a frame during the World Snooker Championship finals - and in typical fashion, he let everybody know about it..

Taking on Kyren Wilson at the Crucible, O'Sullivan was left very unimpressed when The Trammps' famous 1976 song played loudly over the arena speakers.


O'Sullivan went on to win 18-8 to clinch his sixth World Championship, but it wasn't without one particularly tense but hilarious moment.

While waiting patiently for the second frame of the day to start, O'Sullivan couldn't help but dig his heels in the sand when the annoyingly-catchy song 'Disco Inferno' began ringing out over the PA system.

"O'Sullivan looks suitably perplexed," the commentator said.


"I think this situation is quite serious, I don't know why they did that."

Wilson was seen singing along and dancing to the track. As for O'Sullivan, well that's a different story.

O'Sullivan addressed the umpire, asking: "Will that be on every frame?"


"I can't have that on after every frame."

Ronnie The Rocket eventually saw light of the situation and cracked a smile before Wilson went on to take his opening shot.

O'Sullivan's victory takes his title tally up to 37 - overtaking Stephen Hendry on the all-time list of event wins.
