Phil Taylor was celebrating after winning his 14th BetVictor World Matchplay darts tournament after beating Adrian Lewis by 18-13 in a final that scaled the heights at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

Lewis rejoices in the nickname ‘Jackpot’ but it was Taylor, known as The Power, who claimed the £100,000 booty.

Taylor said: “It was tough - it was a great final, but there were two winners here.

“I can’t get any better.”

Lewis said: “I threw everything at him, but he put me under so much pressure.”
