Ronnie O'Sullivan has since come back from his retirement, but has again expressed his boredom with the sport.
Ronnie O’Sullivan has said that despite his recent victory in the European Masters ealier this week, he now finds snooker boring and does not give a "monkey's" about winning the World Championship again
