    Judd Trump kept his nerve to beat Ronnie O'Sullivan in a final frame shoot-out to clinch the European Masters title in Bucharest.

    Trump produced one of the finest performances of his career as he clawed back from 8-6 down to win their best-of-17 encounter with a break of 74 in the decider.

    O'Sullivan, who thrashed Neil Robertson 6-0 in the semi-final, led 5-3 at the interval before a break of 105 - Trump's second of the match - helped him pull back level.

    After O'Sullivan had moved to the brink of victory, Trump responded with his third century and proceeded to wrap up a thrilling 9-8 win.
