Ronnie O'Sullivan: 'I was off my head with Rolling Stones'

Ronnie O'Sullivan reveals that he spent evenings playing snooker with the Rolling Stones while 'off his head'.

Five-time snooker champion Ronnie O'Sullivan has revealed that he used to spend drug and alcohol-fuelled nights with the Rolling Stones.

The 37-year-old has reflected in his autobiography Running, which is being serialised by The Sun, that he played some of his best snooker while 'off his head' with Ronnie Wood and fellow player Jimmy White.

"Years ago, when he (Wood) was still with his wife Jo, me and Jimmy White used to go round to theirs and play snooker epics while getting slaughtered with him and Keith Richards," wrote O'Sullivan.

"One night we were off our heads and me and Jimmy just hit century after century. It was probably the best we've ever played, and nobody was there to see it except a couple of blitzed Rolling Stones."

Recently, O'Sullivan retracted claims that a number of snooker players are guilty of match-fixing.
