Ronnie O'Sullivan completed a routine 10-3 victory over debutant Craig Steadman at the World Championship on Wednesday, having played part of the first-round match in his socks. O'Sullivan took off his shoes during play on Tuesday after complaining that they were uncomfortable, briefly playing in his socks before being loaned new footwear by tournament director Mike Ganley. The five-time world champion could face a Â£250 ($377, 350 euros) fine for contravening the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association's dress code, but he laughed off the matter after sinking Steadman. "I've got no fashion sense at all," O'Sullivan told the BBC.
