Stephen Hendry fired in a 147 maximum break on the first day of snooker's World Championship.

The 43-year-old Scot made the 10th maximum at the Crucible during his first round match against Stuart Bingham.

It was seven-time champion Hendry's third 147 at the venue and the 11th of his career, equalling two Ronnie O'Sullivan records.

He stands to earn £50,000 - £40,000 for the 147 and £10,000 for the highest break prize - unless another player makes the maximum break.
