Nathan Grindal Jesus look alike dart tournamentNathan Grindal, age 33, drew attention from the crowd who began chanting “Stand up if you love Jesus,” and being a distraction to the players: Kim Huybrechts and legend of the oche Phil “The Power” Taylor.

Security was contacted and Grindal was moved to a different area to watch the game over the television.

“It was distressing. I was emotionally distraught. The crowd were bullying me and picking on me. It would have been OK if security hadn’t made a fuss getting me out.

“In his post-match interview, Phil Taylor said something like, ‘If I ever see Jesus again, I’ll crucify him myself’. Now that’s just hurtful.”

Kim Huybrechts signed Nathan’s programme with the words: “To Jesus. Hard luck mate.”

Professional Darts Corporation spokesman Dave Allen said: “There was a lot of chanting of Jesus and to avoid it distracting the players Nathan was taken to another part of the complex.”
