Last Updated: 12/09/18 7:50pm
Ian White lifted his first European Tour title after defeating Ricky Evans 8-5 in the final of the Dutch Darts Championship.
White was playing in his 63rd European Tour event, more than any other player, and was left in tears as he became the third new winner on the continent this year.
"It's been a long time coming, I'm getting older so it's just magical to finally win one," said White, who now has 10 PDC titles to his name.
"I was so pleased to see that double top go in to get me over the winning line because I got a bit nervy towards the end.
"Now I've won one hopefully there will be a few more to come - it's just a magnificent feeling to win a title on stage at last.
"I'm playing well and enjoying the game and I want to start going far in TV events and maybe win one but right now I'm going to enjoy this moment."
