Japan's Hideki Matsuyama produced a brilliant seven-under par round of 65 on Friday to move to 13 under overall and three shots clear at the top of the leaderboard at the 2016 WGC-HSBC Champions in China.

Defending champion Russell Knox and American Bill Haas lie in a tie for second on 10 under heading into the weekend's action, while Francesco Molinari, Richard Bland and Daniel Berger are tied for fourth place on eight under.

Rory McIlroy made a significant move up the leaderboard during Friday's action, making seven birdies in a round of 66 to move to seven under par.

The 24-year-old then kicked on impressively with three consecutive birdies from the 10th and, after a four on the par-five 14th, he moved two shots clear at the top of the leaderboard.
