Dimitri van den Bergh has sent the darts world into meltdown with one of the rarest feats in the sport.

The Belgian star hit a stunning nine-darter at the Grand Slam of Darts on Wednesday, the minimum number of darts required to win a leg.

He managed to hit two rounds of 180s before his final three darts of treble 20, treble 19 and then double 12.

It’s just the fourth nine-darter in the event’s history, and the first since 2015.

The Belgian went on to win the match 10-6, moving through to the third round.

He also collected a cool $45,000 for the nine-darter.

“I still don’t know what happened,” he said.

“Did I just do that?! I’m over the moon, especially because of all the hard times I’ve been through over the past few months.

“This was my first ever recorded nine-dart leg, that was something special.”
