Ronnie O'Sullivan beats Judd Trump 17-11 at the Crucible to reach his fifth World Championship final, where he will play either Barry Hawkins or Ricky Walden.

Ronnie O'Sullivan has reached the World Championship final for the fifth time on his return to the Crucible after easing past Judd Trump this afternoon.

After building a 14-10 lead going into the fourth session, O'Sullivan was in no mood to hang around, taking two frames in quick succession.

Trump kept the match alive by claiming his 11th frame with a break of 77, but his success only delayed the inevitable.

O'Sullivan clinched the next frame to secure a 17-11 victory despite a spirited effort from the 23-year-old.

The 'Rocket' will face either Barry Hawkins or Ricky Walden in the final, with the pair deadlocked at 12-12 in their tense semi-final.
