BBC Sport - Ronnie O'Sullivan 'in good place' despite World Championship defeat

O'Sullivan 'in good place' despite loss

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.
