    Reigning champion Ronnie O'Sullivan kept his title challenge on track with a comfortable 6-2 win over Thailand's Noppon Saengkham.

    But O'Sullivan said he was struggling with "a really, really bad foot".

    "I hope I am OK to play," the 43-year-old seven-time UK champion told BBC Sport. "It's an old running injury.

    "I couldn't stop running forever so I got back to running four or five weeks ago and it's just really sore. I have to manage it. I don't want to pull out so will just have to run on the days I am not playing."

    O'Sullivan grimaced on a couple of occasions, but it did not seem to affect him despite not being at his fluent best in beating his Thai opponent in a match almost devoid of safety play.

    O'Sullivan will face Ding Junhui in the next round.

    World number one Judd Trump's UK Championship run came to an abrupt end in the third round with an astonishing 6-3 defeat against veteran world number 98 Nigel Bond.

    Breaks of 52, 114 and 90 put world champion Trump in control at 3-1.

    But Bond, 54, used all his guile and matched it with some fabulous break-building to win the next four frames.

    And he got over the line by potting a fine long pink in a dramatic final frame.

    Trump was aiming to become just the fourth player to hold all three Triple Crown titles - the World Championship, the Masters and UK Championship - at the same time.

  3. Allen & Higgins into fourth round

    John Higgins

    Three-time champion John Higgins and last year's runner-up Mark Allen secured routine 6-1 wins in the third round of the UK Championship.

    World number seven Allen had little trouble seeing off world number 39 Ben Woollaston.

    The Northern Irishman hit four breaks of more than 50 but did not need to be at his very best against an opponent who failed to take his chances.

    But world number five Higgins had to work harder to beat Ian Burns, taking almost an hour to win the opening frame and edging the next two before finally gaining control of the encounter.

    Ronnie O'Sullivan won the UK Championship for a record seventh time by outclassing Mark Allen 10-6 in York.

    O'Sullivan retained his title to move to 19 World, UK and Masters trophies - surpassing Stephen Hendry's record in the 'Triple Crown' events.

    A run of six frames in a row allowed the Englishman to dominate the final.

    Northern Ireland's Allen rallied to trail 9-6, but O'Sullivan closed out the match with a break of 78 to collect the trophy and the £170,000 top prize.

    Five-time world champion O'Sullivan sat out the 2015 event, but has dominated at the Barbican in recent years, claiming three titles since 2014.
