The five times world champion hit a sublime 147 maximum break in an exhibition organised by former Disability champion Nigel Coton and his wife Ali at the Lincoln Drill Hall over the weekend.

The event raised a total of £3,000 for World Disability Billiards and Snooker. Since its launch in 2015, the organisation’s aim is to stage snooker events for people with disabilities, including both open days and competitive tournaments.

On the Sunday night O’Sullivan took part in a special question and answer session which allowed fans the once-in-a-lifetime chance to quiz him.

Snooker pundit and former UK Championship winner John Virgo also was involved in both events. £500 was also raised which will go towards supporting the venue in the future.
