In pictures: Fans dress up for World Darts Championship

Yahoo Sport UK

Fans have been flocking to Alexandra Palace over the past week to watch the PDC World Darts Championship.

As ever, supporters were hell bent on showing off their finest fancy dress with the likes of Batman, Santa and The Grinch all making appearances.

They were treated to some terrific matches over the past five days too, with Englishwoman Fallon Sherrock becoming the first woman to beat a man in the history of the competition.

Her win came just days after Mikuru Suzuki lost to James Richardson in a thriller which almost saw the Japanese darts player make history.
