Ronnie O'Sullivan Under Investigation

The Saga (and not the Masters sponsor!) continues.

Ronnie O'Sullivan's comments at the China Open in a post press conference have been dubbed as 'unacceptable' by World Snooker chief Sir Rodney Walker. He has personally apologised to the promoter of the Honghe Industrial World Snooker China Open and also sent his apologies to anyone in China that may have been offended by O'Sullivans comments.

This has been referred to the WPBSA disciplinary committee but again will take months for it to be resolved.
