Ronnie O'Sullivan gives one of the more unusual interviews after Players Championship win

Ronnie O'Sullivan does most things to entertain himself.

O'Sullivan is way out on his own as the biggest character in the history of snooker and he came out with another unique interview after reaching the quarter-finals of the Players Championship this week.

'The Rocket' had just beaten Barry Hawkins 6-4 when he decided to adopt an Australian accent in his post-victory interview with BBC Lancashire Sport.

Somehow, the Essex-born player managed to keep a straight face although his accent began slipping at stages and nobody found it more amusing than O'Sullivan.

"I dip in with a bit of Cockney, a bit of Australian and a bit of Scouse, you know what I mean mate?" he said.

It's not the first time that O'Sullivan has given a surreal experience to an interviewer as you may remember that he greeted questions with a sudden chorus of Wonderwall at the Players Championship two years ago.

When asked to explain his Down Under character this week, O'Sullivan said: "I just feel totally positive.

"When you talk Aussie, the Aussies are just winners mate, you know? You've got to love a winner.

"Us English, we love a loser, so I thought I'm fed up of being a loser, I'm going to talk like a winner, like the Aussies. Get the Ashes won, mate."
