BBC Sport - Snooker star Ronnie O'Sullivan joins Belfast athletes for training runs

Rocket Ronnie joins athletes for Belfast training runs

Snooker star Ronnie O'Sullivan's week at the Northern Ireland Open in Belfast included regular runs with athletes from the training group of local coach Eamonn Christie.

Five-time world champion O'Sullivan says running helps him "offset the depression" which he has battled against during his snooker career after a life which has included his father spending 18 years in jail for murder and his mother also serving a prison term.
