Lewis was at one time regarded as the English successor to Phil Taylor, generally regarded as the best darts player ever. The current number 39 in the world was also crowned world champion twice, but it has gone downhill since then. Lewis has also often been negatively noticed by little issues on the podium, including after a match against Dimitri Van den Bergh.

This time it was Gerwyn Price’s (PDC 2)’s turn, also not averse to some verbal and non-verbal warfare. Lewis had just decided the match with a double 19, when ‘The Iceman’ turned to the crowd, horribly disappointed. He threw away some ‘flights’ and wanted to pack his things. At that moment Lewis grabbed his opponent and whistled something in his ear, whether intentionally or not. Price, who won the Premier League round in Sheffield on Thursday, didn’t like it and pushed Lewis away.

In fact, the two ruffs made it so furious that referee Russ Bray had to intervene to end the feud. “I have no idea what went wrong in the end,” said Lewis. “He started targeting me for some reason and called me fat. He obviously doesn’t realize I’m an athlete, so he was wrong there!”

Price, the 2021 world champion, responded via his Instagram page by stating that he let the circumstances overwhelm him.
