Watch amazing footage of World Darts final from ITALIAN commentators as they go wild over Michael Smith's nine-darter | The Sun

DARTS fans have fallen in love with an Italian commentary trio after they went CRAZY during the greatest leg in world championships history.

Michael Smith claimed his first world title on Tuesday as he defeated three-time champion Michael van Gerwen 7-4 at Alexandra Palace.



During the 32-year-old's triumph, the London crowd were treated to a truly remarkable leg of darts as both men set up nine-darter opportunities.

Van Gerwen, 33, narrowly missed with his final dart as he threw just wide of double 12.

Smith did not let the Dutchman off the hook as he nailed double 12 to finish the most remarkable leg the sport has ever seen.

And the Italian broadcasters on DAZN lived up to the occasion as they went absolutely wild in the commentary box.

The Italians' passion for the sport comes despite their country having very few top-level players.

Italy do not have a single individual ranked in the men's top 200.

But that did not stop them from producing hysterical scenes during the final as Smith claimed his maiden title- having finished runner-up in 2019 and 2022.

And Bully Boy, now world No1, was in dreamland following his victory.

He said: "It sounds amazing – world champion. I finally took a chance that I didn’t deserve. I want to apologise to Michael as I’ve been in his position before.

"I wanted to give the crowd what they deserved. They got a magical nine and it was good.

"In terms of a sporting memory, this is my greatest ever.

"I knew I’d be world champion one day. I want to take over this sport."
