Ronnie O'Sullivan blows everyone's mind when asked his most famous phone contact
| Last updated
Ronnie O'Sullivan has shocked everyone by revealing who the most famous person whose phone number he has saved is.
The 47-year-old is always a controversial character, whilst still being well loved by many fans, including once refusing a 147 break as a protest to how much the prize money was.
Sometimes the things he's said have left him with egg on his face, like criticising the modern generation of playing like 'amateurs,' before making the kind of error you'd avoid in your local snooker hall.
But there's no doubt O'Sullivan is the most famous snooker player ever, and that apparently comes with a fame much higher than everyone else, as proved in the video below.
It's amazing that for most of the players a Premier League footballer is the most famous person they can name, which is far more famous than any of us of course.
Meanwhile 'Ronnie' is able to conjure up one of the most famous men on the planet, claiming to have Barack Obama's phone number saved.
Of course, it wouldn't be beyond the Londoner to be lying with some very dry humour, let's not rule it out, but he could equally be telling the truth.
It appears Stuart Bingham didn't quite understand the question fully, as he wonders if Steve Davis will count as a former snooker player.
Either that or Davis and O'Sullivan really are the most famous people that the 2015 world champion has in his phone, which is still better than most of us.
A new behind the scenes film about O'Sullivan is due out shortly and asked how he hopes he's portrayed in it, the snooker star said, "I want people to go away from watching it thinking that I am a winner.
"It is all I have ever wanted to do, I have tried my hardest all my life to compete and be the best I can be, to give my whole life to snooker.
"I love it so much, I am grateful for what it has done for me, it has given me an amazing life with amazing moments. I have been the most successful player, along with Stephen Hendry.
"He was my hero and I am happy to share the seven world titles with him. But I am up there, and I have to pinch myself. As a kid I used to rush home from school to watch World Championships.
"There was Joe Johnson and I went to see Steve Davis when I was 14 beat John Parrott in the final session. And now I am here playing.
"Maybe you get to a point where you take it for granted and I don’t want to, but it is hard when you have been doing it for as long as I have been. And all the media have been part of my life too, and I love you all."
