Gary Anderson has denied farting on stage during his match at the Grand Slam of Darts on Friday night.
The Flying Scotsman progressed to the quarter-finals in Wolverhampton with a 10-2 victory over Wesley Harms.
But the Dutchman was not happy with the result or his performance, blaming it on ‘a fragrant smell’ left by his opponent.
“It’ll take me two nights to lose this smell from my nose,” he told Dutch TV station RTL7L.
But two-time PDC World Champion was horrified to hear these accusations, instead blaming the smell on the Aldersley Leisure Centre.
“If the boy thinks I’ve farted he’s 110% wrong. I swear on my children’s lives that it was not my fault,” he said.
“You can put your finger up my a*** there is no smell there.
“I had a bad stomach once on stage before and admitted it. So I’m not going to lie about farting on stage.
“Every time I walked past there was a waft of rotten eggs so that’s why I was thinking it was him. I thought he had a sh**. I thought he had farted on stage.

“It was bad. It was a stink, then he started to play better and I thought he must have needed to get some wind out.
“If somebody has done that they need to see a doctor. Seemingly he says it was me but I would admit it.”
Anderson will now face Michael Unterbuchner in Saturday’s quarter-final.
