It’s a special episode of the podcast as we are joined for an extended interview by the World Matchplay champion Dimitri Van den Bergh – how he won, how he celebrated and when he first picked up a dart.

After nine days in Milton Keynes, it’s time to reflect on the talking points from a tournament that provided shocks and classics and much more too.

Dimitri Van den Bergh – from picking up a dart at 18 months to lifting the Phil Taylor trophy just a few days ago and planning for the future, darts has been quite a journey for Dimitri. He takes us through it all – including a recent spell in lockdown with world champion Peter Wright.

Colin Lloyd’s talking points – as a former champion our man is quick to pass on his congratulations, but there’s plenty more that took Lloydy’s eye. He takes us through some of the stand-outs and what we might have learned ahead of the rest of the season.
