Ronnie O’Sullivan somehow managed to silence an already silent Milton Keynes arena on Thursday.
The six-time world champion loudly – and accidentally – broke wind during his Northern Ireland Open third-round victory over Matthew Stevens.
O’Sullivan trailed 2-1 in frames and 8-0 in points when he let off a fart before his attempt at a red.
Stevens and referee Ben Williams were unable to hold in their amusement before O’Sullivan cheekily suggested his opponent did it.
The 44-year-old then valiantly admitted to ‘dropping his guts’ in a typically honest confession.
“I dropped my guts – I am taking full ownership of that,” he said after winning the match.

“I have had stomach problems for a couple of months.
“I did say ‘Was that you’ to the referee but I am proud of that one.
“As for the table – it is the heaters and the effect on the cloth. It is like taking clothes to the dry cleaners and they do them on too high a heat.”
Neal Foulds, the commentator for the clash, was also unable to stop himself laughing, saying: “That was a very unfortunate noise.”
