World Snooker Championship 2020: Ronnie O'Sullivan sets record in round one win

As the curtains went up on snooker’s biggest and most celebrated event being played at the hallowed Crucible Theatre in Sheffield without any live audience, fans all over the world were treated virtually to an unbelievable spectacle at the World Snooker Championship as the sport’s poster boy Ronnie O’ Sullivan annihilated Thepchaiya Un-Nooh 10-1 frames with breaks of 101, 85, 115, 74, 88, 76, 65 & 93 in his first-round encounter.

Taking a mere 108 minutes to complete the rout. Five-time winner Ronnie O’Sullivan completed his first-round demolition of Thailand’s Thepchaiya Un-Nooh 10-1 in a World Championship record 108 minutes.

Ronnie shattered the record for the fastest match ever played at the Crucible Theatre previously held by Shaun Murphy at 149 minutes in his 10-0 victory over Lou Honghao.
