Premier League darts Michael van Gerwen beats Gerwyn Price 11-5 to win his seventh title

The Dutchman, 34, was the defending champion and takes home a £275,000 top prize.

He had been level with darts great Phil Taylor on six titles.

“I’ve been working really hard and had problems last week, but I put the pressure on myself and it motivated me today,” the world number three said.

“I had to do something special today and I think today I played some fantastic darts.”

It was the first time Welshman Price, 38, had reached the Premier League play-offs.

“I just couldn’t find the trebles or doubles, sometimes it goes like that, I’m gutted as I feel like this one has got away,” he said.

It was a close final until Van Gerwen broke Price’s throw with a spectacular 170 checkout to lead 4-2.
