GARY Anderson lost out to Gerwyn Price in a bad-tempered Grand Slam of Darts final in Wolverhampton on Sunday evening.

The Burnham-on-Sea star, who earlier in the tournament had been caught up in a bizarre farting controversy after his match against Wesley Harms, beat world number one Michael van Gerwen in a superb semi-final to set up a meeting with Price.

Anderson started the final well and looked in control at 11-8 up needing 16 legs for victory, but the 47-year-old was growing increasingly frustrated with Price's antics on stage.

Price won eight of the last 10 legs to win 16-13 and lift his first ever PDC trophy.

There was no handshake after the match and Price, who was booed by sections of the crowd, said afterwards: "I'm loving it playing on that stage against the best players in the world.

"Five or six years ago I was a rugby player, and now I'm pinching money from the professionals' pockets.

"I'm throwing my darts, he needs to wait for his turn. He doesn't like it when it's a little bit up him, so unlucky.

"I knew when he beat Michael [Van Gerwen] that I was going to beat him. Simple. He can't handle playing me. He just moans every time that I'm doing this, doing that. Concentrate on your own game."

Price's antics divided opinion in the crowd, elements of whom booed the Welshman, and on social media...
