LONDON, Jan. 14 (Xinhua) -- World No. 1 Ronnie O'Sullivan came from 6-3 down to overturn Ali Carter 10-7 on Sunday, winning his eighth Snooker Masters title.

O'Sullivan had not been in his best form for the whole week and struggled when the final started. He trailed world No. 10 Carter 6-3 but regrouped by taking three frames in a row for a 6-6 tie.

Carter managed to take one back with a break of 127, but could not hold off O'Sullivan to seal the record-extending victory 10-7.

The 48-year-old O'Sullivan, the oldest winner at the Masters, also holds the record of the youngest champion at the most prestigious invitational event at the age of 19.
