PDC World Darts Championship final LIVE REACTION: Wright BEATS Smith 7-5 after epic tussle to win £500k – reaction

PETER WRIGHT is the PDC Darts world champion once again last night after a stunning win over Michael Smith at the Ally Pally.

It was England vs Scotland in the capital and both players looked shaky after a stunning 28-DART leg early in the contest.

Wright raced into an early lead, but Smith roared back to make it 2-2 and the players traded the lead from then on.

But Snakebite held his nerve to break the throw and eventually take the win 7-5.

And in winning the title, the Livingston star took home a £500,000 cheque as he celebrated on stage with wife Joanne.
