Ronnie O'Sullivan produced one of the greatest match-winning breaks in the history of snooker yesterday at The Masters in London.

In his quarter-final against Mark Selby, O'Sullivan was one frame away from victory when he came to the table in the ninth frame. Selby was 70 points ahead with only 75 remaining on the table.

Somehow, O'Sullivan used his skill and a bit of luck to clear the table and win the frame 73-70 to book him place in the semi-finals where he will face either John Higgins or current World Champion Stuart Bingham. 

1997 World Champion Ken Doherty was amazed by O'Sullivan's clearance.
