'He's a disgrace': Darts star slammed for bad sportsmanship

Darts fans have taken aim at Welsh competitor Gerwyn Price for a horrible piece of bad sportsmanship against Australia’s Simon Whitlock.

Price had just beaten “The Wizard” in a tense quarter-final tussle at the Grand Slam of Darts.

The Aussie squandered numerous opportunities to book his place in the semi-finals – eventually going down 16-15 to Price.

As the match neared its conclusion, tempers continued to rise until the point Whitlock’s rival finally put an end to the contest.

However, instead of winning with grace, Price let out an over-the-top celebration, before barely acknowledging his rival as he lapped up the applause.

Whitlock took the heartbreaking loss on the chin but as he went to shake Price’s hand, the Welshman barely looked him in the eye.

Instead, he continued to celebrate as if he’d won the whole tournament.

Viewers pounced on Price on social media, slamming the 33-year-old for his unsportsmanlike display in victory.

Whitlock had led 9-5 at one stage but the more he let Price back into the contest, the louder his opponent became.

Price eventually levelled the match up at 10-10 with both players getting increasingly more animated with one another.

At one point the referee had to tell Price to calm down, after his wild celebrating led to an angry exchange.

Price’s next match is a semi-final showdown against Mensur Suljovic, who beat Dimitri van den Bergh 10-6 in their match-up.
