(THIS IS SOMERSET) — Top darts players can’t normally get enough of ‘doubles’ – but a fan who bears an uncanny resemblance to Jesus was kicked out of a major tournament as he was putting off the players.

Bearded darts fan Nathan Grindal was kicked out of a live televised final after the 4,500-strong crowd interrupted play by chanting about him.

Mr. Grindal was enjoying the clash between Phil Taylor and Kim Huybrechts when some of the audience spotted his likeness to the traditional portrayal of Jesus.

Chants of “Jesus” quickly spread through the rowdy crowd packed into the venue on the Butlin’s resort at Minehead on the Somerset coast.
