Simon Jordan attacks Ronnie O'Sullivan SPOTY snubs with dig at snooker icon Steve Davis


“Look down the list at the likes of Emma Raducanu, Lewis Hamilton, Ben Stokes in the time they [the England cricket team] won the World Cup, Mo Farah. In those instances would, or should, Ronnie O’Sullivan, in those moments in time, have been voted Sports Personality of the Year above those characters.

“Because you have to compare who’s actually won it rather than suggest he could have won it because his game is not being taken seriously. You could argue, where’s Phil Taylor, the greatest darts player we’ve ever seen but he hasn’t been included in Sports Personality of the Year. It’s a contradiction in terms because some of those people who rock up on the stage, the one thing they don’t have is any personality.”

Jordan, taking a swipe at Davis – the last snooker player to win SPOTY – added: “The fact Phil Taylor doesn’t feature there, as the dominant force in darts, the fact there’s been no snooker player since 1988 in Steve Davis, one of the most personality-less people…”
