Luca Brecel has continued his fairytale run at the Grand Finals of the World Series of Snooker in Portugal with a 5-3 victory over Ken Doherty securing his place in the quarter-finals finals.

The 14-year-old Belgian sensation, who became the youngest ever winner of the European U19 title earlier this year, had won all of his matches in the opening 'six reds' group including a 4-3 win over Jimmy White.

Brecel will now face former world champion Graeme Dott in the last eight.
