A seventh title would equal the record for most World Championships which is currently held by Stephen Hendry who dominated the sport in the 1990s.

The final is the best of 35 frames meaning O’Sullivan is just six frames away from victory.

What happened in the first two sessions of the World Snooker Championship final?

Although O’Sullivan put in a brilliant performance to race into a seven frame lead, events on Sunday were marred by a dispute between the player and referee Olivier Marteel.

The world number one accused Marteel of “looking for trouble” after he received a formal warning for a gesture during the first session - something O’Sullivan denied.

With tempers flaring, The Rocket was pegged back from 4-1 up to 5-3 by the end of the first session.

However, he was in brilliant form after the break and ended the second session 12-5 up on Trump.

The highest break of the final so far has gone to O’Sullivan who recorded a 120 while Trump’s best has been a 97.

O’Sullivan has so far managed ten 50+ breaks while Trump has managed five.
