Peter Wright’s reign as world champion is over after he was sensationally upset by German 31st seed Gabriel Clemens at the World Championship.
Wright was out of sorts early on, slipping 2-1 down with a run of missed doubles in their third-round match.
The Scot clawed his way back to 3-3 to take the match to a deciding set.
Throwing first at two legs-all in the decider, Clemens missed a shot at bull for the match, but went on to take out double 16 and seal a shock win.
“This is the greatest night of my life in darts, I have no words,” said Clemens, who will next play Krzysztof Ratajski, a 4-0 winner over 2010 runner-up Simon Whitlock.
“I’m the lucky guy, he missed lots of doubles that he doesn’t normally miss, but I am proud of myself.”
Top seed Michael van Gerwen underlined his case for a fourth world title as he took apart England’s Ricky Evans 4-0 in the following match.
The Dutchman will play Joe Cullen next after the Englishman overcame Welshman Jonny Clayton 4-3 via a sudden-death leg earlier in the day.
Third seed Gerwyn Price is among those in third-round action on Monday.
