Gerwyn Price became the first Welshman to win a major PDC title following his victory over Gary Anderson in the Grand Slam of Darts final this weekend.

However, the attention has been shifted away from this achievement and more onto the Iceman’s antics, both during and following the match.

Price had to overcome a considerable margin to claim victory after trailing for the majority of the game.

However, the Welshman won eight of the last 10 legs to bring home the title, in what was an action-packed and heated encounter.

The pair squared up in the 15th and 28th legs, after Anderson became increasingly frustrated with Price’s frequent overly exuberant celebrations.

Price has a reputation for these kind of antics, as well as being slow in collecting his darts after he has thrown them, and it seemed to get in Anderson’s head who lost all composure.

There definitely was not a lot of love lost between the two, with the customary handshake following the conclusion of the game not present.

And it was Price who continued the feud on Twitter just hours later.

The Iceman tweeted a tongue-in-cheek image containing the words ‘Keep calm and Gary on’, before sending out a message defending his actions during the contest.

"I struggle to see what I do wrong apart from celebrate and show my emotions," the 33-year-old’s tweet began.

"If you can’t handle the heat get outa tha kitchen."

Both tweets, however, have since been deleted by the champion.

Although Price does not see the fault in his actions, it seems that Gary Anderson is not alone in opposing them.

Price was booed when lifting the trophy aloft, while fans on social media have called for action to be taken against the Welshman’s unsporting actions.

Attention will now turn to the officials at the PDC, to see whether any action is taken against the Iceman.

While Price currently does not seem particularly bothered about being a fan-favourite, if his actions result in punishment, he may start having to be.
