Ronnie O'Sullivan accuses snooker authorities of "bullying"

Five times-World Snooker champion Ronnie O'Sullivan has accused World Snooker bosses of "bullying" and "intimidating" him.

Speaking to 5 live's George Riley after his win against Gary Wilson at the World Championships, O'Sullivan said "sometimes I obviously say things that I shouldn't say, and I get myself in hot bother."

O'Sullivan and World Snooker boss Barry Hearn have had a difficult relationship since he was sent a disciplinary letter at the Masters in January.

Barry Hearn has declined to respond to O'Sullivan's claim.
