As he was knocked out of the Northern Ireland Open by Masters Champion Yan Bingtao, a fuming Ronnie O’Sullivan yelled at fans to’sit down.’

In the third frame of the 4-3 loss, O’Sullivan, 45, lost his cool and confronted the crowd during a 129-second break, demanding that they stay in their seats.

The 21-year-old Yan took the lead for the first time at 3-2, but O’Sullivan came back from the brink in the next frame, erasing a 71-point deficit to force the match into a decider.

Both players had chances to win, but it was O’Sullivan’s two costly errors that put an end to his hopes of reаching the finаl for the fourth yeаr in а row.
