Alexandra Palace was stunned today when Mark Allen landed a shock 6-1 victory against Ronnie O'Sullivan to send the star crashing out of the Masters' quarter-final.
O'Sullivan seemed to be in control when he secured the first frame but a 65 break followed by five frames was enough to send him out and Allen through to the semi-final.
The English man had suffered a dizzy spell during his match against Marco Fu recently and after that game confirmed he is unwell.
To be honest with you, I was really struggling. I don't know if I have got a virus or something and I just feel very dizzy. I was just playing off instinct. I was thinking, 'Don't stop, just pot balls'. I was really quite struggling and have been like that for the last five or six days.
I don't feel ill, I just feel dizzy. I think it is maybe a lack of magnesium or something, that is what my nutritionist told me.I have been eating well for the last four months, maybe I have overdone the exercise when I have been at home and made myself a bit ill.
He confirmed he was still suffering after his loss and elaborated on his symptom, which included double vision:
'Looking forward to getting in there and doing some punditry.'
