Ronnie O’Sullivan’s hopes of a record eighth World Championship title came to an end as Luca Brecel staged a superb fightback to win 13-10 in Sheffield.

O’Sullivan, who equalled Stephen Hendry’s tally of seven Crucible crowns last year, had led 6-2 and 10-6.

But he failed to win a frame in the final session of their quarter-final as Brecel reeled off seven on the trot.

The Belgian compiled breaks of 112, 64, 72, 61, 78 and 63 to seal a memorable victory and a place in the last four.
