Ronnie O’Sullivan net worth: How much has the seven-time snooker champion earned?

Ronnie O’Sullivan is arguably the greatest snooker player in the sport’s history – meaning it is unsurprising that he has accumulated a high net worth during his career.

‘The Rocket’ won a record-equalling seventh World Snooker Championship on Monday. He defeated Judd Trump 18-13 in the final at the Crucible Theatre.

O’Sullivan seemed to be the man to beat from the minute the players arrived at the famous Sheffield venue. The 46-year-old was world number one heading into the event, and was looking to become the oldest ever world champion.

He did so in style. After a tense first session, O’Sullivan capitalised on errors from his opponent to race into a 12-5 lead. From then on, he never truly looked like relinquishing his advantage.

With victory on Monday, the Brit now draws level with Stephen Hendry as the most successful player in World Snooker Championship history.

After the final, Trump said: “I think if he continues with how hard he works, keeps himself in shape, shows the same kind of determination and positive attitude, then there’s no reason he can’t be around for the next 10 to 15 years.”
