Six-time world champion O’Sullivan can match Stephen Hendry’s record of seven Crucible crowns, a record which has stood since 1999, if he beats Trump. The Rocket, 46, is the oldest finalist for 40 years and expects a real battle in Sheffield.

He said: “Judd’s going to be a tough nut to crack. I find this event really difficult. This venue just plays tricks with your mind. It’s really tough. 

“I don’t feel tired, it’s just a difficult tournament. It’s 17 days. It’s just tough. Some people take to it a bit better than others. There’s a bit of a circus this tournament. It’s 17 days of stress this tournament, I need a detox.”

While Trump said: “It’s a dream come true to play Ronnie in a world final. I think beating Mark is my best ever win. He was absolutely incredible. It was like playing a computer game on hard towards the end.”

This is O’Sullivan’s eighth Crucible final and the world No 1’s only loss came to Mark Selby in 2014, while No 4-ranked Trump – bidding to become just the seventh multiple-time champion ever – has only ever made the final once, when he beat Higgins three years ago.
