Phil Taylor came close to hitting a magical nine-dart finish in his final World Championship in a throwback video as the tournament comes close to beginning at the Alexandra Palace.

Taylor was facing off against Rob Cross; in what was set to be a potentially fairytale ending for the legend.

Despite it not going his way in the final; he nearly left with a brilliant ending and that was a nine-dart finish.

He hit the outside wire though going for double 12; as the fan held it’s collective breath from going into raptures.
