Anthony McGill stunned Shaun Murphy at the Betfred World Championship as last year's runner-up followed title holder Stuart Bingham in being bundled out of the tournament.

Breathtaking scoring from Scottish potter McGill saw the 25-year-old plunder breaks of 64, 85, 81, 50, 117 and a closing 97 to roar back from 6-4 adrift and win 10-8.

On his Crucible debut last year, McGill beat Stephen Maguire before ending Mark Selby's title defence, only to fall to Murphy in the quarter-finals.

This time the Glaswegian had Murphy's measure, and the beaten 2005 world champion applauded his conqueror at the match's end.

After Bingham's defeat by Ali Carter on Saturday night and Peter Ebdon's exit to Marco Fu, Murphy's exit made it three world champions eliminated inside 24 hours.
