O'Sullivan says Chinese cash could revamp snooker's image

Snooker legend Ronnie O'Sullivan believes the sport needs a jolt - and the solution could be resolved by an infusion of Chinese cash.

The mercurial 40-year-old quintuple world champion - whose comments are never dull but sometimes spark disciplinary action - said the sport's staid image pales in comparison to others whose packaging is slick and contemporary.

O'Sullivan - who was speaking on the sidelines of the UK Championship tournament where he has reached the last 16 - made the remarks after no snooker player made the list of nominees for BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
