SNOOKER champion Ronnie O'Sullivan has revealed plans to spend his £500,000 Crucible winnings on an inflatable boat to explore the Lake District.

The snooker icon was crowned the winner of the World Championship final last week, clinching his seventh victory at the Crucible.

His 18-13 triumph over Judd Trump matched Stephen Hendry’s record of seven world crowns.

The 46-year-old has become the oldest world champion in history, eclipsing the record set by Ray Reardon who was 45 when he won his sixth title aged 45.

The snooker icon pocketed £500,000 in prize money for his latest victory and revealed that he plans to spend his winnings on a rigid inflatable boat to explore the Lake District.

“I’m going to do loads of stuff, I’m going to travel,” O’Sullivan said.

“I might go to the Lake District, I’ve already got like a house boat up there but I might go and buy a little RIB and explore the lake and just have some fun.

“I’m just going to be enjoying myself and getting fit as well.”

Since the start of his professional career in 1992, Ronnie has scooped over £8.5million, winning seven Masters and seven UK Championships as well as a record 20 Triple Crown titles on top of the seven World Championships. He’s now estimated to be worth £32million.
