Darts sensation Luke Littler had a scary moment at the Premier League Darts in Belfast following a brief altercation with a fan.

The 17-year-old was hurt before his big game with Michael van Gerwen when someone grabbed him during his entrance. Littler was walking to the stage with the song "Greenlight" by Pitbull playing when it happened.

A fan tried to grab Littler, but luckily, security was there to help at the SSE Arena. Littler admitted he was slightly shaken by the incident but managed to quickly regain his composure to defeat his Dutch rival 6-3.

"I don't know who he was, he pulled my arm. It hurt a little bit," Luke said. "That's why, when I went on stage, I didn't interact with my music. I heard everyone singing but I just needed to relax. As soon as (referee) Charlie said 'Game On', I had to relax myself. My hand is fine. It worked out well."

Littler defeated Luke Humphries, van Gerwen and then Nathan Aspinall in successive matches to claim victory in Northern Ireland. H is now second in the Premier League darts rankings, just behind Humphries, reports the Mirror.

The Manchester United fan made an amazing comeback from being 3-1 down in the final, winning four legs in a row to get a 6-4 victory. Littler is looking forward to trying for another win soon.

He's off to Manchester next for the Premier League, which will be like coming home for him because he was born in Warrington.

After his win, he shared: "I'm happy to win, it's my first one. I'm glad to win against a good friend."

He talked about how he has changed his way of throwing darts. "As people may have seen, I have changed my throw, trying to take that extra bit of time and then release the next two. Sometimes I rush my darts. I am taking more time before releasing the next dart."

He also said that he practised a lot for this competition and it really helped. "I have practised more for this and it has paid off. I had a good practice game before coming out with Rob Cross. It got me up for this. If you don't enjoy it, you don't perform. You won't play well. Every arena had 5,000-plus fans. I cannot wait for next week in Manchester. It's close to my home."
