World champion Ronnie O'Sullivan warmed up for next week's UK Championship by beating Neil Robertson 6-5 in the Champion of Champions semi-final.

O'Sullivan, who edged past Ding Junhui 6-5 in a gripping quarter-final, was involved in another exciting game against world number one Robertson.

But the 37-year-old held his nerve and will meet Stuart Bingham in Sunday's final in Coventry.

World number 10 Bingham upset Mark Selby, the world number two, 6-4.

O'Sullivan is a four-time UK Championship winner, and will face Scottish amateur Rhys Clark in the first round of this year's tournament, which begins in York on Monday.
