Gary Anderson upset 14-time champion Phil Taylor to win the PDC World Championship for the first time on Sunday night.
In a nail-biting finale that ended 7-6, the Flying Scotsman was able to beat the Power in a thrilling contest at Alexandra Palace.
Anderson showed tremendous mental strength to shrug off losing nine of 10 legs after going 3-1 up, a no score and shouts from the crowd at 4-4 to collect dart's richest prize.
The Scot's win was well received on social media with former footballers, sportsman, TV presenters and even actor and comedian Stephen Fry among those to congratulate him.
