O'Sullivan beats Lisowski in York

Ronnie O'Sullivan remained on course for a record-breaking seventh UK Championship title with a devastating 6-1 win over Jack Lisowski.

In-form world number 17 Lisowski led 1-0 after an encouraging start.

But he missed a number of regulation pots and the five-time world champion capitalised in clinical fashion.

O'Sullivan led 3-1 at the interval and breaks of 118 and 112 helped secure a 17th UK last-eight appearance against either Ding Junhui or Martin O'Donnell.
