Ronnie O'Sullivan had the referee laughing his head off after farting just before potting the pink in the season's first ranking event.
The Rocket is already out of the Championship League having lost to Yuan Sijun (0-3) and Pang Junxu (1-3) in Group A of the last-32 stage. But he still had one match to go where he faced old foe Ali Carter on Wednesday.
And with little to play for, the 46-year-old was taking things more lightly - though he did romp to victory in style with breaks of 127 and 66. However, O'Sullivan was also breaking wind when potting the final pink kicking up a stink.
Even his flatulence could not alter his swagger, though, potting with ease despite a huge grin spreading on his face - an expression shared by the referee. The official stood right behind him and could not contain himself, perhaps hoping it was louder than it was smelly.
O'Sullivan regained composure and went on to pot the black and claim a 3-0 victory in the process. But this is not the first time that the Wordsley-born star's bowel movements have affected him on the big stage.

Only last year when taking on Tom Ford did O'Sullivan let loose during a WST Pro Series match as well as dropping another when facing Matthew Stevens at the 2020 Northern Ireland Open. Rocket Ronnie is back in action next month when he faces Sean O'Sullivan at the European Masters on August 16.
While the legendary potter might be disappointed to crash out of the Championship League so early on, he is not the only big name to be on their way home. Mark Williams, Judd Trump, Mark Selby and Kyren Wilson are all out while the Chinese players are dominating such as Lu Ning, Lyu Haotian and Xiao Guodong.
