And before a key shot on the green, The Rocket paused while distracted by members of the crowd walking in and out of the arena.

At one point there was a steady stream of punters trying to take a seat, so O’Sullivan did the same and sat next to his opponent.

After a lengthy delay, referee Desislava Bozhilova assured O’Sullivan that the door was closed and no more fans would be allowed.

The world number one stood up and told the referee to “chill”, while Bozhilova replied: “I’m chill.”

O’Sullivan, 48, then brilliantly potted the green but lost another action-packed frame, surprising the commentators again.
