Michael van Gerwen wins World Championship

Michael van Gerwen is PDC World Darts Champion for the second time.

The Dutchman saw off the challenge of defending champion Gary Anderson and did so in style, winning 7-3 with an average of 107.79, with five ton plus finishes.

It was a match of the highest quality with 42 180s thrown - breaking the previous record of maximums in a single game of 34.

van Gerwen adds the 2017 championship to his 2014 win, picking up the Sid Waddell trophy and a cheque of £350,000 for his efforts.

And rather worryingly for his opponents, the 27 year old insists he can still improve.

"I think I can get more consistent than this.

"I can do this all the time, I have that belief in myself and I never give up.

"Winning trophies is something I love, and something I want to do for the rest of my life"
