Luke Humphries visits Prime Minister Rishi Sunak after World Darts Championship win

Luke Humphries has received an invitation from British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to visit 10 Downing Street, after winning the World Darts Championship. 'Cool Hand Luke' took the world title last Wednesday by defeating Luke Littler 7-4 in the final.

Humphries first of all already received congratulations from Prime Minister Sunak via social media, but was also allowed an audience last Friday. The 28-year-old Englishman spoke with the Conservative leader about his world title win, also giving Sunak a small darts clinic.

"It is a privilege of course," Humphries told the Press Association. "These are not things you get to do every day, it was a privilege to be invited, this is massive for our sport."

"I have got a duty as the flagbearer of darts at the moment," Humphries continues. "We just talked about sport, nothing else really. He wanted to congratulate me on the success, he enjoyed the game and it really is important for figures to be coming in and enjoying our sport."
