HYSTERICAL female darts fans have caused play at the BDO World Championship to be suspended.
The clash between Martin Adams and Jeff Smith was postponed after Adams’ fans rushed the stage in an attempt to get close to the man commonly acknowledged as the planet’s sexiest sportsman.
Play was halted while security removed the most passionate spectators, some of whom fainted when Adams addressed them directly.
Self-described ‘Martinette’ Nikki Hollis said: “He looks like George Clooney meets Brad Pitt. Specifically if George rolled Brad in butter and ate him.”
Adams said: “My body is the result of a lifetime of pushing myself to the limit, and I suppose attention is inevitable.
“I can deal with the odd wolf-whistle, but we could barely see the dartboard through the blizzard of thongs.”
