World Championship 2019: Ronnie O'Sullivan suffers shock defeat by James Cahill

Wednesday 10:50 GMT

Amateur James Cahill pulled off the biggest shock in Crucible history as he completed an astonishing 10-8 first-round win over five-time champion Ronnie O'Sullivan.

O'Sullivan was set to go 9-8 ahead but missed a relatively simple final pink to allow Cahill, the first-ever amateur to make it through to the Crucible, the chance to clear up. And he made sure of his place in round two, when he will face Scotland's Stephen Maguire, with a fine clearance of 53 in the final frame.
