Former world champion Shaun Murphy succumbs to a 4-2 defeat in Coventry's Champion of Champions event at the hands of 15-year-old Chinese amateur Yan Bingtao.

Former world champion Shaun Murphy has been knocked out of the Champion of Champions event by Chinese amateur Yan Bingtao.

The 15-year-old, who is still at school, secured a shock 4-2 win in Coventry over the 2005 world champion, 2015 Masters winner and current world finalist.

Yan told reporters after his victory: "I am delighted to have won. Shaun is a tough opponent so I had nothing to lose and that took the pressure off.

"I loved the atmosphere and I was proud of the reception I got. It was my first match in the UK and I really enjoyed it."

Yan, who had a top break of 74 against the world number four, went on to lose 6-3 against Australian Neil Robertson later on Thursday.
