‘Aussie Ronnie is here to stay!’ – O’Sullivan reveals reason behind accent
He’s just scored 1,000 professional centuries and won the Players Championship with a 10-4 victory over Neil Robertson.
So Ronnie O’Sullivan can celebrate how he wants.
And if that includes doing an Australian accent, well, so be it.
The 43-year-old continued to use the mock twang - that is, perhaps best described as 'loosely' Australian - which he has picked up over the past few weeks, in his post-match interviews.
And he explained why he has been doing it, saying: “Aussie Ronnie is here to stay, mate! He ain’t going nowhere – he’s here for good!"
When asked if it was something to do with going in the jungle for I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, he added: “No mate, it’s all to do with Netflix… there’s a lot of Aussie shows on there and I’ve just been watching so many of them that I’ve just bloody become one of them, you know!”
