John Higgins stormed back from a heavy deficit to lift the Shanghai Masters title with a thrilling 10-9 victory over Judd Trump in the final.

Despite a fantastic 147 break, Higgins was trailing 7-2 at the mid-session interval in the best-of-19 tussle as Trump looked odds-on to avenge his defeat to the Scot in the 2011 World Championship final.

However, Higgins reeled off six frames in a row and although Trump was able to force a decider, it was the 37-year-old who triumphed.
