O'Sullivan's 'snooker from the gods'

BBC Sport's John Parrott praises Ronnie O'Sullivan as playing "snooker from the gods" as a break of 87 sends him into a 5-0 lead over Stuart Bingham in their World Championship quarter-final.

Nicknamed 'The Rocket', O'Sullivan increased his lead to 7-1 by the end of the session, with seven-time champion Stephen Hendry concurring with Parrot, adding you "can't get snooker played any better than this".

O'Sullivan decided to take a sabbatical from the game last November and had only played one competitive match coming into the tournament after claiming his fourth world title last May.
