His win at the 1993 UK Championship aged 17 years and 358 days remains a record for the youngest player to triumph at a ranking title.

Meanwhile, he is also the oldest winner of all three Triple Crown events and is the only player to have achieved 1,000 century breaks in professional competition (he achieve that in 2019 and is now up to over 1,200).

His 15 maximum breaks in competition is also a record - including the quickest ever at 5 minutes and 8 seconds at the 1997 World Championship.

With his great success has come great financial rewards. But how much do we think The Rocket is worth?

O’Sullivan has also been involved with several video games, a documentary film called Ronnie O'Sullivan: The Edge of Everything, and has run his own online snooker course entitled The Rocket Method.
