Trump's Snooker Match Interrupted by Ally Pally Wasp

Trumps Snooker Match Interrupted by Ally Pally Wasp

Ally Pally Wasp Returns at Masters Snooker

The Masters Snooker tournament at Alexandra Palace was once again disrupted by the notorious Ally Pally wasp. This time, it attached itself to Judd Trump's waistcoat during his quarter-final clash with Ali Carter on Friday.

Trump Plays On Despite Unwanted Visitor

Despite the unexpected guest, Trump continued to play, even completing a century break. The wasp remained on his waistcoat throughout the sixth frame, until the referee intervened and asked him to pause so the insect could be removed.

Fans React to Wasp's Cameo

Snooker fans took to social media to share their amusement at the situation. One fan wondered if it was the highest break ever made while carrying a wasp, while another described it as a "cracking day for insects."

Not the First Time

This is not the first time the Ally Pally wasp has caused chaos at sporting events. It disrupted the PDC World Darts Championship and even stung teenage player Luke Littler during his quarter-final win over Brendan Dolan on New Year's Day.
