Ronnie O’Sullivan was caught up in a hilarious moment after breaking wind during his last-32 win at the Northern Ireland Open on Thursday.
The reigning world champion loudly played his trump card early in the fourth frame of his match against Welshman Matthew Stevens, which he went on to win 4-2 in Milton Keynes.

Williams had immediately taken a large step to his left away from O’Sullivan and the referee went bright red, with Stevens also laughing hysterically.
Later, O’Sullivan told Eurosport: ‘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!’
O’Sullivan made the headlines two weeks ago after an incredible row with Mark Allen during their Champion of Champions clash.
Allen branded O’Sullivan a ‘bully’ after the Rocket accused his opponent of distracting him – O’Sullivan has since texted Allen and apologised for his outburst.
