Dutchman Michael van Gerwen has failed in his fourth attempt to win the PDC World Darts title after losing 7-4 to England’s Michael Smith in the final at Alexander Palace in London.
“We played very well from the start and had our chances, but if we don’t make the most of them, it will be difficult against Michael,” he said.
Van Gerwen won the title in 2014, 2017 and 2019, defeating Smith in the final four years ago.
Best legs ever! 🤯🔥
