Michael van Gerwen has thrown his first nine-dart finish since his switch to a new darts manufacturer on Sunday afternoon.

Van Gerwen hit his nine-dart finish during his hard-fought victory over Cristo Reyes (6-5) in the last sixteen of the sixth Players Championship event. Mighty Mike took out the fourth leg within nine darts to lead 4-1. However Reyes fought back to 5-5, before Van Gerwen decided the match with a 12-darter.

The world number one is the 11th player to hit a perfect leg during the 2020 PDC season. The likes of Dave Chisnall, Nathan Aspinall and Mensur Suljovic have already produced a nine-darter this year.
