BURNHAM-ON-SEA darts star Gary Anderson has received a "formal warning" for a push on Gerwyn Price during an ill-tempered Grand Slam of Darts final in November.

Price has been fined £12,000 for his part in the incident, as well as £8,000 for his actions during his quarter-final victory over Simon Whitlock earlier in the tournament and £1,500 for "actions on social media".

The Welshman ended up winning the final 16-13 but it was largely overshadowed by the bad blood between the two players.

A Darts Regulation Authority statement said: "The Committee found that Mr Price had brought the sport into disrepute by his actions and that they amounted to gamesmanship in his matches with Mr Whitlock and Mr Anderson.

"Mr Price’s actions were very serious and went beyond what was acceptable in his celebrations and he was overly aggressive in his behaviour in his matches.

"It was decided that his actions were a cynical attempt to put off his opponents to gain him an advantage.

"These actions were in the quarter-final and final of a prestigious televised event and drew an unprecedented number of complaints from members of the public.

"The Committee found that Mr Anderson was in breach of the rules when he pushed Mr Price during the GSOD Final.

"The Committee’s view was that Mr Anderson was significantly provoked during the match by his opponent that resulted in what is clearly a non- aggressive push by Mr Anderson on Mr Price.

"It is the view of the Committee that it is not acceptable for a player to lay hands on another player, irrespective of the provocation.

"The sanction imposed on Mr Anderson is a formal warning."

Both players have 14 days to appeal the decision of the tribunal.
