O'Sullivan 'in good place' despite loss
- From the section Snooker
Five-time world champion Ronnie O'Sullivan says he has "never been in such a good place" despite losing his title to Mark Selby.
O'Sullivan said he was "proud" of the way he never gave in against Selby, who came from 10-5 down to win 18-14, and admitted a few years ago he would have "thrown the towel in" in similar situations.
Defeat leaves O'Sullivan two behind Stephen Hendry's record tally of seven world titles.
