Protest causes interruption at Snooker World Championship


A protest has disrupted play at the Snooker World Championships in Sheffield.

A man jumped onto one of the two pool tables at the Crucible Theater in Sheffield. From an opened sachet, he spilled an orange powdery substance on the table. The match between Robert Milkins and Joe Perry had begun there on the third evening of the tournament.

The game was initially interrupted and the table cleaned with a vacuum cleaner.

As the broadcaster “Eurosport” reported, a protester tried to stick to the other table. The Belgian referee Olivier Marteel prevented this. The game between Northern Ireland’s Mark Allen and Chinese Fan Zhengyi, which started in the morning, was to be continued there. There is a partition between the two tables.

The match should be continued as soon as possible, the organizers announced in the arena. A little later, Allen and Fan resumed the encounter. The other table should first be covered with a fresh cloth.
