“To be seven years down the line and be world champion, World Cup champion and world number one is a crazy achievement.
“I’m still on cloud nine and I never thought I would be here holding this trophy, but to be world number one is probably the most difficult thing.”
Price dedicated his victory to his late mother, writing on Instagram there was a “shining light looking down on me all tournament”.
He said: “It was a lot of pressure on myself, I knew I wanted to lift this for her.
“I started playing darts seven years ago and she only saw the first year of it.
“What I’ve done she would be proud of. It was an amazing feeling when that final double went in.”
