TRUMP CARD "Was that you?" - Flatulent Ronnie O'Sullivan tries to cover up an embarrassing moment
Ronnie O'Sulliavan was left red-faced as he broke wind loudly in his match against Welshman Matthew Stevens.
The reigning world champion had his momentary loss of control in the fourth frame of the Northern Ireland Open, which is being played in Milton Keynes due to Covid-19 restrictions.
O’Sullivan appeared to apologise to Stevens before turning to embarrassed referee Ben Williams and joking: “Was that you?”
Later, O’Sullivan said: "I dropped my guts – I am taking full ownership of that. I have had stomach problems for a couple of months.
"I did say ‘Was that you’ to the referee but I am proud of that one."
"If he was any redder, he'd be one of the balls in the bunch..." 😂😂— Eurosport UK (@Eurosport_UK) November 19, 2020
