Fans blown away after hearing what Ronnie O'Sullivan and Judd Trump said to each other after World Championship final in 2022

Ronnie O'Sullivan shared an incredibly emotional moment with Judd Trump after his record-equalling seventh World Championship title.

A very moving conversation between Ronnie O'Sullivan and Judd Trump after the World Championship final in 2022 has resurfaced – and fans have been blown away by the "amazing" moment.

'The Rocket' was overcome with emotion on the evening of May 2, 2022, when he secured a record-equalling seventh world title at the famous Crucible Theatre, Sheffield.

After joining Stephen Hendry as the most successful player in World Championship history following an impressive 18-13 win over Trump, the often-relaxed and carefree O'Sullivan broke down in floods of tears.

In fact, he engaged in an incredibly emotional minute-long embrace with former world number one Trump, who delivered some special words as O'Sullivan sobbed in his arms.

You can listen to that conversation below. How incredible is this?

Here's how fans on social media reacted to the scenes.

One said: "Wow I have never heard what he said to Judd until I saw this. Brilliant," while another commented: "Hats off to Judd for saying that. Now that's sportsmanship."

A third wrote: "First time I’ve heard this and what an emotional moment. I’ve got a lump in my throat. Trump was fantastic with Ronnie."

A fourth commented: "So misunderstood and misjudged Ronnie, accused of not taking it serious enough. Refreshing to see him leave it all out there. The GOAT."

A fifth added: "It’s just mad that they captured that moment. So amazing to have such an insight into one of the most monumental moments in snooker history."

Speaking after his match, a teary O'Sullivan opened up about the incident. “I was so emotional. To finally get over the line, I just thought it would never happen,” he said.

“I gave him a big hug and I was just sobbing in his arms. And he said such lovely words.

“What he said to me blew me away to be honest. It just blew me away. I love Judd. I love him, he’s a great lad, and I didn’t realise what he thought of me until then.

“Different respect there, you know. I didn’t realise how he sees me and how I’ve been part of his development."

When asked if it was the nicest moment of his Crucible career, O’Sullivan replied: “Without a doubt. What he said, Judd, just done me in! Honestly.”
