Ronnie O’Sullivan equalled birthday boy Stephen Hendry’s all-time record of 775 century breaks to round off a 6-4 win over Ricky Walden at the Masters.

The first-round clash looked all over bar the shouting at 5-1, but the Cheshire cueman reeled off three frames – including one in which he needed two snookers – and the reigning champion was looking tense.

But he got his opportunity in frame 10 and was well past the winning post when an outlandish fluke on the yellow kept alive his run to a 116 clearance and a moment of history.

“You go chasing records and you end up doing it on a fluke!” O’Sullivan told BBC Two.

“I’d had a bit of ‘run’ through the match and thought ‘I could fluke this one’.”
