Judd Trump's 9-8 defeat to Mark King in the Maplin UK Championship yesterday ended with the teenager accusing his opponent of excessive swearing.
"He was getting frustrated and swearing during the match," Trump said. "He shouldn't be doing that.
"He kept swearing every time he played a bad shot, every time someone said 'come on Judd'.
"It was silly of him. It didn't really put me off but it just made me want to beat him.
"He didn't get warned once. He should have lost the match really. He swore at least ten times."
Players can be warned for swearing under the 'ungentlemanly conduct' rule. They are warned that a further transgression will result in a frame being awarded to their opponent.
If they break this rule again the match is awarded against them.
I have no way of verifying if what Trump said is accurate. Equally, I have no reason to disbelieve him.
