Ronnie O’Sullivan: Masters winner responds angrily after being criticised by Ali Carter

Ronnie O’Sullivan has called Ali Carter “not a nice person” and “a nightmare” to play against after being criticised by the beaten Masters finalist.

On Sunday, O’Sullivan rallied from 6-3 down to beat Carter 10-7 and win a record-extending eighth Masters title.

Afterwards, Carter accused the world number one of “snotting” – clearing his nose – “all over the floor”.

A World Snooker Tour spokesperson said the whole incident between the two players was “under review”.

The WST did not go into what the ramifications could be or a timeframe.

On Tuesday, O’Sullivan beat Pang Junxu of China 4-2 at the World Grand Prix in Leicester.

Following the win, world number one O’Sullivan told ITV he will “definitely be missing a few tournaments” after this.

“I shouldn’t even really have come here to be honest, but it is alright so I thought I would just turn up. In hindsight, I shouldn’t have come,” he added.

“I would like to think if I fell off the tour I might get a wildcard, but knowing World Snooker they would probably say no.

“I am just trying to keep my tour card really, that’s all I am trying to do.

“I am not bothered about tournaments, it is not my favourite bit to be fair.”
