He became just the third player after Phil Taylor and Wayne Mardle to win the tournament on his pro debut.

But it was Littler’s antics earlier in the night that left opponents and fans stunned.

First, he put on an incredible show against Michele Turetta in the last 32, winning the game with a nine-dart finish.

And Littler almost repeated the check-out in his next match against Cameron Menzies.

Going 4-0 up in legs, Littler then embarked on an incredible run as he hit eight darts in a row.

Even Menzies could not believe what he was seeing, raising his arms in excitement at the prospect of another nine-darter.

However, Littler missed the double 12 and failed to complete a second stunning finish.

But fans were blown away by Menzies’ reaction during the match.
