Judd Trump is yet to win the World Championship

Tournament favourite Judd Trump is just a frame away from a stunning first-round World Championship defeat against world number 54 Rory McLeod.

McLeod, a 46-year-old 1000-1 outsider, led 9-7 when the match had to be stopped prior to the afternoon session.

Trump resumed 5-4 behind on Wednesday after surrendering a 4-0 lead and seemed hindered by a shoulder problem.

The 27-year-old missed a series of simple chances, but managed to fight back to 6-6, before McLeod pulled away.

The pair will play to a finish after the first of the two evening matches finishes.
