Daryl Gurney earned his spot in the third round of the World Darts Championship with a flourish on Thursday afternoon.

SuperChin saw off Ricky Evans 3-1 in a thrilling contest as Evans missed four darts that would have forced a deciding set before Gurney held his nerve to hit double tops and get over the line.

But the show was only just beginning when that clinching darts found the double 20. Then it was on to a mixture of karaoke and Cristiano Ronaldo impressions.

Both Gurney and the beaten Evans took the chance to give the Manchester United star’s iconic celebration a go.

And after that, it was on to a sing song and what else to sing but Northern Ireland supporters’ anthem, stolen by England during Euro 2020, Sweet Caroline.
