British snooker player Ronnie “The Rocket” O’Sullivan has revealed that visiting Kenya is at the top of his bucket list in an interview with The Times.

In the article, titled ‘My hols’, the 42-year-old five time World Snooker Championship winner discusses destinations he has visited and where he would like to travel to.

The snooker player tells interviewer Lisa Pollen that he has had big breaks to China and Thailand, but feared for his safety in Marrakesh and Snowdonia.

Near the end of the article, he reveals: “I’m terrified of snakes — but it won’t stop me going to Kenya. That’s top of my bucket list. I want to do the London Marathon and I’d love to train with the Kenyans out there. I might ask Mo Farah to help, but I’m not sure he’d want to carry me around.”
