Luke Littler knows what he'll spend his money on if he wins World Darts Championship

Luke Littler knows what he'll spend his money on if he wins World Darts Championship

The teen has made history after landing himself a place in the final

Luke Littler has made history by becoming the youngest ever person to earn himself a place in PDC World Darts Championship final at just 16 - and the teen already knows what he’d spend his prize money on if he wins.

Littler - dubbed Luke the Nuke - has amassed an army of fans as he powered through the tournament, winning himself a spot in the final last night (2 January) after beating 2018 champ Rob Cross.

Speaking after his record-breaking win, a delighted Littler said: “I haven’t got the words. It’s crazy. I have just settled on that stage.

“It has not even sunk in yet. I have surprised myself. I have just got to stay focused and be Luke Littler.

“I have got to be mature and be myself. It would be unbelievable if I won it, I only wanted to win one match.”

Littler, from Warrington, already made history when he became the youngest person to win a quarter final game at the World Darts Championships.

And now he’s set to face Luke Humphries, who beat Scott Williams 6-0, in the final for a chance to win a whopping £500,000.

Although Humphries is the favourite heading into tonight’s match, Littler has already got plans for his winnings - albeit pretty humble ones.

He told The Telegraph: “I always treat myself to some Under Armour tracksuits. “And just get myself a new coat and get myself some Fifa points for my Xbox. That’s pretty much it.”

Littler, who turns 17 later this month, said that he would ‘love to start driving’ but as yet, hasn’t given much thought to what motor he fancies.

Whether he wins or not, he’s already made himself a tidy sum - for reaching the final he’s scooped £200,000.

Littler started playing darts when he was just a toddler, and judging from a video found of him during that time, he wasn’t a bad player even then.

15 years later and the champ has gone on to become a sensation in the Paddy Power World Championship - with incredible wins over the likes of Dutch professional Christian Kist and the UK Open champion Andrew Gilding.

And the PDC World Youth Champion has performed so well up against more experienced players.

After winning his quarter final match, Littler said: “Afterwards, he said: "It's gone well today. Another tonne-plus average. I've got a good chance. Now I'm dreaming. I'm two matches away. I'm dreaming of winning the title.”
