Stephen Hendry completed a crushing 13-4 victory over John Higgins to reach the quarter-finals of the World Snooker Championship, according to the BBC.
Hendry needed only one frame to seal Higgin’s worst defeat in the event.
The former champion resumed 12-4 ahead and knocked in a break of 64 to progress.
He made it his first ranking event victory over Higgins since 2003 and secured his first Crucible quarter-final since 2009.
Hendry now faces Stephen Maguire who sealed a 13-7 win over Joe Perry. World number seven Maguire confirmed his place in a fourth World Championship quarter-final in six years.
