The eco-zealot jumped on the snooker table during a match between Robert Milkins against Joe Perry during Day Three of the World Snooker Championship at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.
Moments before, another protestor had jumped on the next door table, but was stopped and taken away by the venue’s security.
Snooker fans jeered and booed the activist as he interrupted play. One irritated fan shouted: ‘Get him off!’
It is unclear why the group chose to attack the snooker. However, after the intrusion, Just Stop Oil told their followers ‘oil and gas will snooker us’.
A Just Stop Oil protester tossed orange paint over a snooker table during the World Championship before being dragged away today.
The group said: ‘Two Just Stop Oil supporters have disrupted the World Snooker Championship at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, interrupting play.
‘The pair proceeded to cover the tables in orange powder paint before being removed by security and arrested.
‘They are demanding that the Government immediately stop all new UK fossil fuel projects and are calling on UK sporting institutions to step into in civil resistance against the Government’s genocidal policies.’
MailOnline has contacted Just Stop Oil for comment.
