PETER “Snakebite” Wright and his ensemble of brightly tinted mohawk created by his wife, Timmy Mallet’s cast-offs and an open-mouthed snake painted on the side of his head were not enough to win the PDC World Championship. Having upstaged Simon “The Wizard” Whitlock beard and plait kit, the 43-year-old Wright went down to the less extravagantly attired Michael “Mighty Mike” Van Gerwen, who in his moment of victory upstaged Wright’s effort by wearing the gigantic trophy as a top knot.

It’s not often enough that a bald man in a lime green nylon top has the last laugh, but this was one occasion when hair was upstaged.

But Wright remained upbeat, stating: “I don’t give a monkeys about the other finalist. My wife told me the other day she was going to say, ‘Knock it on its head’, last year if I never had a good year. Look now. You mature with age like a good wine.”

Albeit a wine that glows in the glass.
