SNOOKER legend Ronnie OâSullivan admits he has âquit mentallyâ and âdoesnât care anymoreâ about the sport.
The Rocket, 46, is widely regarded as one of the best-ever players to grace snooker.
OâSullivan won a record-equalling seventh World Championship title in May.
Along with his seven Masters and seven UK Championships, OâSullivan holds an incredible 21 Triple Crown titles.
The ace, who also holds a record 39 ranking titles, has been playing at the top level since he was 16 years old.
But OâSullivan says starring in snooker for 30 years has left him numb.
He admits he gets no joy from playing, despite being one of the best potters ever.
Indeed, OâSullivan reckons he checked out from snooker in 2014, the year after winning his fifth World Championship.
And despite winning two more titles since then, he claims he is now âemotionless.â
OâSullivan said: âI donât care anymore to be honest with you.

âThe job ainât worth the stress and the hassle.
âI quit mentally about eight years ago and I just take what I can from the sport.
âItâs a good platform for me, it allows me to do other stuff.
âIt gives me a lot of freedom, but as far as trying to win tournaments and cement my name in the game?
âThere ainât enough good stuff in the game for me to get excited by it.
âSo I just take what I can from it and one day Iâll wake up and get excited and Iâll play a good tournament.
âBut if I donât? I donât really care anymore to be honest with you.
âI just get my cue out, pot a few balls, get paid and thatâs it at the end of the day.
âItâs just become an emotionless-type job.â
