The “whoever smelt it, dealt it” rule has been thrown out the window right after two rival darts players accused every other of breaking wind through their match.
Gary Anderson, 47, a Scottish two-time entire world winner, saw off his 34-12 months-previous Dutch opponent, Wesley Harms, 10-2 to reach the quarter-finals of the Grand Slam of Darts.
Even so, Harms complained that he was afflicted by a “fragrant smell”, which he reported Anderson still left driving as they played at the Aldersley Leisure Village location in Wolverhampton.
He told Dutch Tv channel RTL7 on Saturday: “It’ll consider me two evenings to shed this smell from my nose.”
But Anderson – the earth range four – waved the accusation away and reported he imagined the odor might have arrive from his opponent.

“I believed Wesley experienced farted on phase,” he told the channel. “I assumed ‘that’s dirty’ – it was terrible, it was a stinker.
“I thought it was him and he started out taking part in far better, I believed he must’ve necessary to get some wind out. I swear on my children’s lives [it wasn’t me]. But it was smelly.
“If I experienced farted and it smelt like that I would have put my palms up and say ‘sorry’. It [the odour] was table-facet, it was eggs. Rotten eggs. Each time he walked past it was a waft of rotten eggs.
“If someone has done that they need to have to see a doctor.”
Anderson will now confront German Michael Unterbuchner in the future round.
