Chigwell's Ronnie O'Sullivan can go on as long as the Rolling Stones, says the iconic band's guitarist and number one fan of the snooker star, Ronnie Wood.

'The Rocket' won his fifth Masters title on Sunday, beating defending champion Mark Selby 10-4 at Alexandra Palace.

O'Sullivan has said he wants to be the first player in the modern era to win the World Championship in his forties and Wood is confident Ronnie will not fade away.

"Ronnie could go on as long as the Stones the way he is now, playing left and right-handed which is more than I can do with my guitar," he told the Mirror.

"He is timeless but also has youth on his side."
