O’Sullivan pulls out of International Championship

WORLD champion Ronnie O’Sullivan has pulled out of the International Championship citing health reasons.

O’Sullivan, who beat Ali Carter to be crowned last season’s World Championship winner, will not participate in the all new ranking event which starts on Sunday in Chengdu.

His omission comes after he took a break away from the game on health grounds.

In a statement, published on the Grove Snooker website, O’Sullivan said:  “I’m very sorry that I had to officially withdraw from the International Championship, due to ongoing health problems.

“I would have loved to be fit to compete in Chengdu but I have been advised by my doctor not to travel. I want to sincerely apologise to World Snooker, the sponsors and the fans for the disappointment caused. I look forward to see you all soon.”
