Ronnie O'Sullivan defeated Kyren Wilson 18-8 in the World Snooker Championship final, at the Crucible, to seal his sixth World Championship title.
Even though Wilson fought back to 10-8, O’Sullivan completely dominated the rest of the match with a run of eight frames.
With this win, the 44-year-old took home the World Snooker Championship 2020 trophy, £500,000 in prize money and moved back to second in the world.
The Englishman was highly pleased with the win, making it his 37th ranking title, a new record surpassing Stephen Hendry’s 36 ranking titles.
He told BBC Two: “I never really think about titles. When I was a kid I never really dreamed I would be here. To be here and have all those victories is a dream that has become a reality.
“There was part of me that decided I didn’t play enough to justify winning a tournament of this stature which is an endurance test.
“I am not really an endurance type player because I don’t compete enough. I had half a chance but didn’t expect to win it.”
Wilson wasn’t too hard on himself and kept his head high after losing the match.
He said on BBC Sport: "I am 28-years-old. I am not going to beat myself up too much I am playing the greatest of all time. It was a dream come true knowing I was playing Ronnie in the final.
"You can’t respect him too much or he’ll walk right over me, which is what happened today. I have the two most important people to me sat right here.
"I am a fighter, I always will be. I really struggled in the first session and I just relaxed and let the shackles off. I’m just annoyed they would not let me play the whole match last night."
