Gerwyn Price is the 2018 Grand Slam of Darts champion after he overcame Gary Anderson 16-13.

Price went into the final as the underdog but managed to prevail over the Scotsman to win his first PDC Major title.

But it's fair to say the final had no shortage of controversy.

Price regularly winds his opponents up with his antics on stage, often giving over-exuberant celebrations whenever hitting a high score or a double.

He had an altercation with Simon Whitlock in the quarter-finals, and Anderson also took exception in the final on Sunday night.

Price's antics were getting to Anderson almost immediately from the outset and the Scotsman had words with his opponent in the 15th leg.

Tensions only continued to escalate and Price put his finger to his lips and waved Anderson off stage after reducing the deficit to 11-9.

And then the two were involved in a sensational altercation in the penultimate leg of the game.

Price hit 174 and proceeded to turn around and celebrate right in front of Anderson's face.

Anderson then reacted by pushing his opponent and waving his finger in his face in anger.

What an incredible bust-up between the two.

Price would go on to win that leg and would then pin D20 to secure the victory.

Unsurprisingly, there were no handshakes between the two as Price paraded around the stage.

Anderson swiftly left the stage, although he would return minutes later to collect his runners-up trophy.

Price wouldn't have cared though, and said in his post match interview that Anderson can't handle playing him.

Gerwyn Price won his first PDC Major at the Grand Slam of Darts

"I'm throwing my darts, he needs to wait for his turn," Price said, per LiveDarts. "He doesn't like it I'm a little bit up him, unlucky.

"He can't handle playing me, he just moans all the time and he needs to focus on his own game.

"I was chasing the game all the way through but I knew if I put him under pressure he would crack and he did. I will go down in history as the player to win the Eric Bristow trophy - it means a lot to me."
