Who doesn't love the World Darts Championship? For Christmas week they take over our TV screens and we all suddenly become experts in the 'sport'.

The scenes at London's Alexander Palace seem to emulate those taking place in pubs across the country, only difference being this is broadcast live on Sky Sports for the world to see.

During Sunday nights final, a fan invaded the stage and tried to nab the Sid Waddell Trophy

It's now been revealed the 'fan' is an internet prankster from the group Trollstation, according to the Irish Daily Mirror.

He legged it onto the stage and got his hands on the silverware before being tackled by security and escorted off stage.

This all happened during the bout between Michael Van Gerwen and Gary Anderson, which finished 7-3.
