Snooker: Ronnie O'Sullivan tells Donald Trump to 'chill bruv'

Ronnie O'Sullivan hits out at Donald Trump after North Korea tweet.

Five-time world snooker champion Ronnie O'Sullivan has urged United States president Donald Trump to "chill bruv" in response to a tweet about North Korea.

Trump posted on Tuesday that North Korea was "looking for trouble" and that the US would "solve the problem" without China if the country opted against getting involved.

But the polarising leader faced criticism from an unlikely source after 'the Rocket' weighed in with his opinions on the matter in a series of tweets.

"China don't need the USA.. you need China more than they need you," he advised the president. "I wouldn't do business with the USA all you do is have wars.

"Donald you need to chill bruv. Let's not have another Iraq.. let people run there [sic] own country. USA ain't got it great.. pure debt."

O'Sullivan added that "people can change the world".
