Michael van Gerwen added another Euro Tour title to his collection yesterday defeating Peter Wright 8-7 in a tense but thrilling final in Leverkusen.

It brought a welcome return to form for his opponent Wright but for Van Gerwen it asserted his dominance at the top of darts.

He spoke afterwards saying how glad he is to win and that despite missing lots of doubles he could get over the line against Wright.

“I love the European Tour tournaments – all the people coming to watch all the time is phenomenal. I’m just glad to win.

“I played terrible in the first part of the game, I missed lots of doubles and needed to improve.

“Luckily for me I did exactly that and it was enough to clinch the win.

“I love these titles, the crowd were fantastic and really gave me a lift throughout.”
