Ronnie O'Sullivan looks destined to compete in the final of the World Snooker Championship after ending the afternoon session of his semifinal versus John Higgins up 18-9.

After a tense start to today's session, O'Sullivan flashed his genius with as the game progressed.

This was most evident during the 18th frame, as O'Sullivan lead 10-7 and coping with a very messy clear-up. He might be the only player in the world who could conjure a break out of this.

You can watch the entire 8-minute clear-up here.

The BBC commentary team praised his genius afterwards.

"I don't think we'll ever see a player as good as him play the game," Steve Davis said on the BBC when the afternoon play ended.

"I feel a bit sorry for John today," John Parrott added. "He's playing a genius. He is a genius, that boy. You'll never see a player like that again. To finish a session off like that. He's had frames that have lasted a half an hour. He's been put through the mill.  He's had frames that are bitty and awkward. He has stood up to everything. That boy is a genius."

Snooker fans watching at home were amazed.

The focus in O'Sullivan's eyes was obvious during that frame.

 

O'Sullivan is chasing his first victory at the World Championships over Higgins in 21 years.

Meanwhile, Jimmy White has apologised after dropping an F bomb into yesterday's coverage of the game between John Higgins and Stuart Bingham.

"Evening all," he wrote. "I wanted to offer my sincerest apologies for my unacceptable language earlier today and for any offence caused. Hope this didn’t affect anyone’s enjoyment of the coverage and can continue to look forward to an exciting last few days."
