World champion Ronnie O’Sullivan set up a semi-final with Judd Trump as he took four frames in a row for a 5-3 win over Kyren Wilson at the World Grand Prix.

But breaks of 66 and 86 helped him to victory in Milton Keynes.

Trump had two centuries, equalling Mark Allen’s highest break of the event with a 142, as he beat Martin Gould 5-2.

A key moment in O’Sullivan’s win occurred in the sixth frame when Wilson, 3-2 ahead and leading by 13 points with only 13 remaining, missed the final pink and went in off, allowing his opponent to level.

Friday afternoon’s remaining quarter-finals pit Mark Selby against Iranian Hossein Vafaei, who beat Ding Junhui 4-1, with Zhao Xintong facing Jack Lisowski.
