Action from Day 2 of the 2017 Betfred World Snooker Championships

Ronnie O'Sullivan won through to the second round of the Snooker World Championship after a stiff test from Crucible debutant Gary Wilson.

Having been 5-1 up in the first session, Wilson won 3 in a row to leave it 5-4 overnight.

 Referee Brendan Moore asks for an unruly member of the crowd to leave the arena
 Re-spots the white after a foul...
 ...and asks Hawkeye to confirm the placement
 The joy of Ronnie - potting a pink across the table - right handed...
 ...then taking the next red into the bottom pocket using his left hand
Ronnie gets the cue extension out which is always a good shot - until you get blocked by a cameraman.  Happens in every sport - you get used to it as a sports photographer
O'Sullivan made 124, 83 and 74 to go 9-5 ahead, Wilson hitting back with 103 before losing out 10-7 in the end.
