The 2010 world champion failed to qualify for this year’s Masters but was able to analyse every shot as part of Eurosport’s TV coverage.

Robertson joined the likes of Ronnie O’Sullivan, Jimmy White, Neal Foulds and presenter Colin Murray throughout the week at London’s Alexandra Palace. It was the first time Robertson had done punditry work for the channel which is rising in popularity over its snooker coverage across the globe.

After Mark Allen’s victory in the Masters on Sunday, Robertson said he enjoyed his time with the broadcasting team.

He tweeted: “Had an awesome time with Eurosport UK and with the best studio team in the business in Jimmy White, Ronnie O’Sullivan and Colin Murray.”

Robertson, who last month was crowned the winner of the Scottish Open, failed to qualify for the Masters as he was unable to make the world’s top 16 ranking list following the UK Championship – the seeding cut off for the prestigious invitational event.

But victory against China’s Cao Yupeng ensured Robertson started the year back in the world’s top 16 – though it was too late for Masters qualification.

The Australian is likely to return to competitive action this weekend when the China Open qualification event takes place.
