Ronnie O'Sullivan Shoulder-Barges Ali Carter As Things Get Heated At World Championships

Things certainly got heated during Ronnie O'Sullivan's second round match against Ali Carter on what has been an entertaining Saturday afternoon at The Crucible.

Carter, who is yet to beat O'Sullivan in a ranking tournament, has produced some of his finest snooker against the world number two and at the time of writing, he currently leads the match.

I think it's fair to say that Ronnie hasn't brought his A game to the championships in recent days and in a moment of madness off the table, he collided with his opponent in a nasty exchange:

As he went to sit down, you can clearly see that O'Sullivan left a shoulder in as he barged into the 38-year-old. Words were then exchanged, with Ronnie apparently saying: "Thought I'd give you one back"

Ali then replied "Thank you" to which Ronnie responded "S'alright!"

According to listeners, referee Paul Collier tried to restore order, but you can see a frustrated O'Sullivan sitting in his chair after the incident.

Well you don't see that happen everyday in the game of Snooker.

Thoughts on O'Sullivan's behaviour at the Crucible this afternoon?
