Snooker: O'Sullivan returning to snooker to defend title

LONDON (AP) - Ronnie O'Sullivan is ending his sabbatical from snooker to defend his world title.

The 37-year-old Briton, widely regarded as the most naturally talented player in the history of snooker, will compete in the world championship in April in the English city of Sheffield.

O'Sullivan had said in November that he would not compete for the rest of the season, but will now look to win a fifth world title.

Only Stephen Hendry (seven), Steve Davis and Ray Reardon (both with six) have won snooker's top prize more times.
