A two-time PDC World Champion, Gary Anderson has been drawn into commenting on a bad smell that arose during his 10-2 defeat of Wesley Harms at the Grand Slam of Darts last night.
With both players complaining of a smell resembling "rotten eggs" creeping in during their match, it was put to Anderson in his post-match interview that Harms had accused him of farting mid-game.
Needless to say, he was having none of it.
Interviewer: Just spoke to Wesley, besides that he said you were a class player and you let him alive for the first session, he said that it was smelly on the stage.
Gary Anderson: I thought he had shit ... I thought Wesley had farted on stage. Did he?
Interviewer: No, I think he thinks you did it.
Gary Anderson: You can put your finger up my arse, there'll be no smell there. I thought he had shit and I went 'that's dirty'. It was bad.
Interviewer: He thought it was you.
Gary Anderson: No, hands up. Swear on my kid's life, so help me god, nothing crossed.
Interviewer: But it was smelly anyway?
Gary Anderson: It was smelly. Usually if I fart on stage I s**t myself. You know that because I've told you in a documentary. If I'd farted and it smelled like that I'd put my hands up and go 'sorry, I need to get off'.
Interviewer: So, who was it then?
Gary Anderson: Don't tell me. You've got three boys up there. It was table-side. It was eggs, rotten eggs.
