Defending champion Judd Trump is out of the World Championship after falling to a 13-9 quarter-final defeat by Kyren Wilson.

World number one Trump made breaks of 72, 100 and 62 as he reduced his overnight deficit from 10-6 to 11-9.

But Wilson, capitalised on a poor safety shot to move 12-9 ahead before wrapping up his victory with a 104 break.

Wilson will now play Kurt Maflin or Anthony McGill in the last four.

Trump had been hoping break the so-called ‘Crucible curse’ by becoming the only first-time winner to retain his title since the tournament moved to its current venue in 1977.

However, while he started positively, winning three of the first four frames going into the mid-session interval he was unable to maintain his best form.
