There was an astonishing moment during the World Championship final as Ronnie O'Sullivan had an argument with the referee over the placement of the white.
"Ronnie O'Sullivan received a formal warning from the referee following a gesture he made in the eighth frame." O'Sullivan is already facing an investigation by the WPBSA disciplinary committee for allegedly making a lewd gesture after missing a black in the 13th frame of his 10-5 first-round win over Dave Gilbert.

And Ronnie wasn't shy of showing his dissatisfaction with his effort, and was caught on BBC cameras doing an x-rated hand gesture soon after.
“Ronnie has been a pleasure to share the table with,” began Trump during his post-final interview. “He's always been so good to me throughout my career. Let me practise with him when I was young to try and learn things off him. [This is] an amazing achievement, and he will go down as the best player of all time.”
