Norwich’s Darren Webster knocked Simon Whitlock out of the PDC World Darts Championship for the third time in four years on Wednesday.

The 49-year-old – nicknamed Demolition Man – was a 4-1 winner against the Aussie, who struggled to keep up with Webster throughout.

Webster quickly took a two-set lead and made it 3-0 before Whitlock managed to get on the board by winning the fourth set without losing a leg.

However, any hopes of a comeback were ended as Webster closed out another victory over the 10th seed.

“I’m really pleased with myself here,” added Webster. “That was a rematch and he was obviously after me. Again, I have played 12 legs against the man and he has only won two and they keep making him favourite – and I love it.

“I am really enjoying it.”
