Due to Coronavirus, darts has come to a halt but DartsNews as a result takes a look back at some historic moments from darting history with this time Michael van Gerwen’s great escape at the 2016 World Championship being the focus.

On Saturday as part of their PDC Rewind, they put the full match online between Michael van Gerwen and Rene Eidams from the 2016 World Championship.

Van Gerwen seemed to be heading for an easy win in this match. After two sets, he was leading 2-0, but his opponent managed to return to 2-2.

A deciding set was then played with both players managing to win two of the first four legs. Mighty Mike got out of jail to break Eidams with a 12-darter, which led to the decisive set 4-2.
