Man runs onstage at World Darts Championship, snags trophy


As expected, the world was glued to their television sets on Monday, as the dramatic World Darts Championship unfolded before the eyes of adoring spectators. Gary Anderson, known as the “Flying Dutchman” by his sprawling fan base, set a record with his 65th 180 in a single tournament.

However, the night belonged to champion Michael van Gerwin, who played brilliantly in North London.

As this who attended the PDC World Darts Championship gathered to watch the championship trophy given to the winner, they saw something quiet surprising instead.

A man ran suddenly onto the stage, takes the trophy from the presenters hands and hoists it over his head in triumph.

The trophy was quickly wrestled from his hands and he was dealt with by authorities.

Van Gerwin was finally able to hold the trophy he has thrown so many darts to win, and the man who tried to horn in on his glory was booed by an unamused crowd.
