The Incredible ​Ronnie O’Sullivan Shot That Won Him The Semi-Final Decider Against Mark Selby

The Incredible ​Ronnie O’Sullivan Shot That Won Him The Semi-Final Decider Against Mark Selby

Ronnie O'Sullivan's inch-perfect shot against Mark Selby has been branded as "one of the greatest shots in the history of snooker."

The 44-year-old snooker legend was on the verge of crashing out of the World Championship after falling 16-14 behind to Selby.

But O'Sullivan, who beat Mark Williams in the quarter-finals, fought back hard and won two quick-fire frames before continuing his momentum to claim victory in a nervy decider.

Journalist Nick Metcalfe has now taken to Twitter to praise five-time champ O'Sullivan for playing the 'perfect' shot when the pressure and stakes were at their highest.

O'Sullivan played a brilliant shot towards the corner pocket and managed to hit it sweet enough for it to come back at a tight angle and hit the red.

O'Sullivan will now take on Kyren Wilson at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield as he attempts to draw alongside Steve Davis on six world titles.

"I'm watching him [Selby] cue up and he's got the perfect set-up and the perfect start by trying to make the score look respectable, but some of my play wasn't great.

"If I can find the cue action, then I will enjoy the final. Cue action first and everything else is a bonus."
