World Snooker Championship: Ronnie O’Sullivan and Judd Trump suffer shock exits

Ronnie O’Sullivan and Judd Trump were dumped out in the quarter-finals on a day of shocks at the World Snooker Championship.

Bingham and Jones will now go head-to-head in the semi-finals.

Welshman Jones, 30, told BBC Sport: “I feel good and pleased to get through. I thought Judd struggled. He started with a century and it kind of motivated me.

“I played a good three frames then and although it went 4-4, I felt like he was a different player and went into his shell a bit and I took advantage of it.”

On the other side of the draw, David Gilbert booked his place in the semi-finals by beating Steven Maguire 13-8.

He will face fellow Englishman Kyren Wilson, who advanced to the final four following a 13-8 triumph over John Higgins.
