Darts Player Accuses Opponent of Distracting Him by Farting During Tournament.
Dutch player Wesley Harms raised a stink over the actions of opponent Gary Anderson of Scotland with Harms insisting that Anderson released a foul cloud that distracted him from his game, according to the New York Post.
Ever taking the high road, the British press has labeled the situation “Fartgate.”
“It’ll take me two nights to lose this smell from my nose,” the Dutchman told the media.
“Every time I walked past there was a waft of rotten eggs, so that’s why I was thinking it was him,” Harms exclaimed. “It was bad. It was a stink, then he started to play better, and I thought he must have needed to get some wind out.”
Anderson, who won the match 10-2, has admitted to farting on the firing line in the past, but this time he fully denied the odiferous emanation.
“If the boy thinks I’ve farted, he’s 1,010 percent wrong,” said Anderson told the media. “I swear on my children’s lives that it was not my fault. I had a bad stomach once on stage before and admitted it. So I’m not going to lie about farting on stage.”
The number four ranked dart player went on to give reporters one bit of information too much saying, “Usually if I fart on stage, I s**t myself, I’ve told you that before.”
