79: Ronnie O'Sullivan
Arguably the greatest sportsman of all time, snooker legend Ronnie O'Sullivan, joins us to talk about how he navigated an incredible career and all the ups and downs that came with it. Now 44 and recently crowned World Champion for the sixth time he also holds a record seven Masters titles, and a record seven UK Championships for a record total of 20 titles in Triple Crown tournaments.
He is one of 11 players to win a career Triple Crown, O'Sullivan holds the all-time record for the most ranking titles with 37. He broke the record he shared with Stephen Hendry by winning the 2020 World Snooker Championship.
Quite simply he is a legend but also a really nice guy who openly talks about the moments in his star-studded 30-year as a professional when times were tough, the mental side of playing a solo sport and introduces Giles and Jim to card game kalooki.
