BBC Sport - World Snooker Championship: Ronnie O'Sullivan not chasing Stephen Hendry record

O'Sullivan not chasing Hendry record

Ronnie O'Sullivan says he is not focussing on Stephen Hendry's record of winning seven World Championship titles at The Crucible.

The 38-year-old started the defence of his World Championship crown against Robin Hull in Sheffield on Saturday.

His five titles are one fewer than Steve Davis and Ray Reardon. Hendry's seven is the highest in recent times.
