There was heartache for Gary Anderson at the Grand Slam as he fell to an agonising defeat in the final.

The Unicorn man was beaten 16-13 by Gerwyn Price in Wolverhampton on Sunday in what was an ill-tempered final.

Having seen off Michael van Gerwen in the semi-finals, Anderson got embroiled in a war of words with Price and from 13-11 in front, he lost five straight legs as Price became the first Welshman to claim a PDC Major.

It really was there for the taking but Gary couldn’t take his chances when it really mattered.

He threw for an 8-4 lead but was broken and Price won four on the spin to lead 8-7. Four legs on the spin put Gary in front again, but again he threw for a four-leg lead and 12-8 but couldn’t convert.

Some of Price’s actions may be called into question. Gary was clearly fuming on the stage and the Welshman took the honours.

It will be a huge disappointment for Anderson because he had it in his grasp to win the Grand Slam for the first time.
