Ronnie O’Sullivan giving food he had bought to a homeless man in Cardiff city centre.

Here’s a man who deserves to be called a star, rather than those whose celebrity simply feeds their own selfishness.

I’m aware that many of our most famous do their good deeds under cover; perhaps Mr O’Sullivan would have preferred this to be the same, but his activities were spontaneous, on the street, and seen by members of the public.

That doesn’t excuse those who ignore the vulnerable and needy, or – worse – those in the political arena who deliberately contribute to their plight.

A Tory politician stopping to help the homeless would be a hypocrite – unless they rebelled against their party’s policies (and there are precious few of those, if any).

So let’s take the opportunity to praise Mr O’Sullivan – and cast those others into the shade they deserve.

Snooker superstar Ronnie O’Sullivan may have endured a disappointing time at the Welsh Open, but that didn’t stop him showing his caring side in Cardiff.

As he left the Motorpoint Arena after being knocked out in the quarter final by John Higgins, he spotted a homeless man sleeping in a doorway.

Temperatures had dropped to around -10°C on the bitterly cold night, Wales Online reports.

Ronnie was so shocked to see the man in the doorway of the nearby Rainbow Casino he had to do something.

He went to the supermarket next door and bought him some sandwiches and drinks.
