Ronnie O'Sullivan has won his fifth Masters title by defeating Mark Selby in the final at Alexandra Palace.

The 'Rocket' raced into a 7-1 lead in the opening session, before winning three of the next six frames this evening to see off Selby 10-4.

O'Sullivan has been in unstoppable form all week, with his quarter-final whitewash over Ricky Walden being described as one of the finest performances in snooker history.

Selby was expected to offer a tougher test in the final, but O'Sullivan stormed into an early lead which the Leicester-born player couldn't pull back, paving the way for another major title for the 32-year-old to add to his collection.
