A wasp kept Alexandra Palace buzzing on Monday night as it interrogated Mensur Suljovic during his win against Kevin Painter.
Suljovic made safe progress to the second round of the World Darts Championship as the fifth seed saw off Painter, comfortably defeating the Englishman 3-0.
Suljovic, who faces Scot Robert Thornton in round two, told PDC TV: "Kevin beat me before and I told him on the stage that's 1-1 now so it's a good feeling, it's brilliant.
"I'm happy I'm here, this is brilliant playing on that stage with this crowd. It's amazing."
