Dimitri van den Bergh became the first winner of a PDC Major title from Belgium and as a result, the question arose about the reaction back in his home country to his World Matchplay.
Van den Bergh summed it up as ‘unbelievable’ but that many people’s perception of him hasn’t changed despite what he has achieved.
‘It’s unbelievable how many people are actually happy with me and how many people have been following me and remember me; even though I’ve just become a major champion, they still look at me as the Dimitri they know from years ago,’ said Van den Bergh to Weekly Dartscast.
’If you could see how proud my family are, it just makes it even more beautiful and makes me realise I’ve done something special here.’
