In the world of football, it is far from uncommon for players to overdænges with beer when they come close to the spectators.
It is, however, not when played darts. Not at all.
nevertheless, it was exactly what happened when the world's best dartspiller, Michael van Gerwen, was in action for the first time at the year's biggest tournament - World Darts Championship in a sold out Alexandra Palace in London.
The double world champion was ready to be introduced and then to go the classic walk up on the stage to the notes of a chosen song.
Before he reached so far, chose a spectator, however, to throw a beer out of the dutchman, who certainly did not like to be bathed in hops shortly before his led match.
- It has never happened to me before. I had no idea how I would react. I was furious, but what can you do? You can't do anything, he said to Sky Sports after the match.
You can see the episode in super slow at the top of the article.
Opponent Alan Tabern was already introduced and found themselves on the stage, but had the englishman wait any longer time ahead of the festive and hearty drinking crowd than normal.
Michael van Gerwen could not carry out the fight without a walk in wardrobe.
- The only thing I could do was to switch my t-shirt and wash my hands, as it was everywhere on my arms. We throw arrows with our hands, and every little thing in your hands gives you a different feeling. It was quite difficult, and I was slightly affected, but I'm glad that I won the fight, he explained.
