Gary Anderson’s quarter-final victory over Wesley Harms in the Grand Slam of Darts caused a stink. In one of the most astonishing and unexpected post-match exchanges in sport history, Harms accused his Scottish opponent of farting on stage.
Anderson won 10-2, but the match was followed by a very public argument over who was responsible for the air quality.
…in a post-match interview Harms said his poor form was due to Anderson breaking wind on stage and leaving a “fragrant smell”.
He went further while speaking to Dutch TV station RTL7L: “It’ll take me two nights to lose this smell from my nose.”
When Anderson in turn laid the blame at Harms’s door, the Dutchman responded: “If the boy [Anderson] thinks I’ve farted he’s 1010% wrong. I swear on my children’s lives that it was not my fault. I had a bad stomach once on stage before and admitted it. So I’m not going to lie about farting on stage.”
