Ronnie O'Sullivan is a genius... it really is that simple.

Whether he's producing magic on the table against his opponent, or providing us with comical moments in pre-match and post-match interviews, he really does know how to make the headlines.

Often forgot or dismissed in the GOAT discussion when it comes to sport, people should start putting more respect on the snooker player's name.

During this year's World Snooker Championship, he has reminded sport fans of just how special he truly is.

Incredible performances around the table, but also highly entertaining interviews as well.

Yes he's sometimes a bit controversial and a bit of a maverick, but when you're that good and that talented and can back it up, you have every right to be.

O'Sullivan's greatness was on full show on Friday evening when he was facing Mark Selby in the semi-finals, and one moment in particular has rightfully took all the plaudits.

You may have actually missed The Rocket's greatness because of a certain Champions League game that saw Bayern Munich thrash Barcelona, but fear not, we have your back.

Just watch that shot above and try tell us it's not pure genius.

The statement attached to the video says it all and sums it up perfectly.

"If you consider the high stakes, the context, the pressure, this must be one of the greatest shots in the history of snooker from Ronnie O’Sullivan. The groan of appreciation from Stephen Hendry accompanies it perfectly."

The groan of appreciation from commentary, the inch-perfect shot and just the overall greatness being shown.

O'Sullivan is a special, special talent, and we wouldn't be surprised to see him take home yet another title this weekend.

Take a bow, Ronnie... we salute you!
