Neil Robertson, the 2010 snooker world champion, has admitted an addiction to video games affected both his professional and personal life.

He took a first step towards that goal by beating Thailand's Crucible newcomer Noppon Saengkham 10-4 in the first round in Sheffield.

Then Robertson opened up about the obsession with gaming that he believes has held him back on the snooker table.

The 35-year-old victor looks on course for a place in the second round after taking an 8-1 lead over Noppon Saengkham, of Thailand.

"You find yourself sitting in front of the computer screen for six, seven or eight hours straight, which is obviously not healthy".

Robertson said: "I'm very happy to get through".

"It is a serious issue". In China there are gaming addiction camps where they take kids that are hooked.

"Mille (Robertson's partner) absolutely hates it. League of Legends is banned in my house and rightly so".

He lives in Cambridge, where he set up home in 2004 after leaving Melbourne to pursue his snooker dream.

"I've had really good application in my practice after dragging myself away from playing too many video games", he said.

"That was when I was a teenager - 17 or 18".

In a separate Eurosport interview, Robertson said he used to stay up all night playing games.

"If you are a single guy and work in a normal job you can get around it".
