World Snooker Final: O'sullivan Claims Record-Equalling Seventh World Title

Ronnie O'sullivan equalled Stephen Hendry's modern-day record of seven Snooker World Championship Titles by stopping a Judd Trump rally in its tracks with an 18-13 win in the final.

Trump won six of Monday afternoon's eight frames to battle back to 14-11.

But O'sullivan sealed his victory and the £500,000 top prize as he took four of the evening's first six frames.

O'sullivan enjoyed runs of 82, 88, 75, and 85 - and shared an emotional embrace with trump, which lasted more than a minute, at the end of the match before greeting his children who ran into the arena to share his special moment.
