Ryan Day continued his superb form by knocking out world number one Mark Selby in the first round of the Players Championship in Llandudno.

Day, who has won back-to-back titles in Gibraltar and Romania, hit two centuries in a 6-3 victory.

He is aiming to become the first player to win three consecutive tournaments since John Higgins in 2001.

Five-time world champion Ronnie O'Sullivan progressed to the last eight with a 6-1 win over Graeme Dott.

O'Sullivan will play China's Ding Junhui while Day will face fellow Welshman Mark Williams.
