Snooker ace Ronnie O'Sullivan backing Liverpool's Suarez to get right help

Snooker ace Ronnie O'Sullivan has offered help to Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Suarez is being sent for sessions with sports psychiatrist Dr Steve Peters, the same man who O'Sullivan credits for getting his life back on track.

O'Sullivan told the Daily Star: "I understand what Suarez did, I totally get it. It's like me walking out against Stephen Hendry.

"It's a moment of madness and you think, 'Wow, what have I done?'

"You regret it afterwards but at that moment you're overrun by these emotions.

"Sometimes things like that could have been avoided if you had dealt with them earlier.

"Maybe if I could have diffused what was going through my head I wouldn't have got to that point where I shook Hendry's hand and gave up."
