Snooker: Ronnie Plans To Out-Fox Opponents

Ronnie O’Sullivan is the favourite to win the inaugural Pro-Animal Masters at Sheffield next month after he unveiled his playing partner, a white fox named Fitzcarraldo.

O’Sullivan won the fox in a card game against Fidel Castro and says “We’re completely in sync and know each other’s games inside out. Plus, if I can’t be arsed, he’ll take up the slack while I slope off round the back for one of me little episodes.:

Fitzcarraldo says, “Snooker is another step on my journey. One day when this is all over I will return to Cuba and lead my people towards the light.”
