'I'm still waiting for this to sink in' - Fallon Sherrock after stunning World Darts Championship win

Fallon Sherrock says she can't believe what's happening after she pulled off an even bigger shock at the PDC World Darts Championship in London last night.

After making history by becoming the first woman to win a match at the event earlier in the week, she knocked out world number 11 Mensur Suljovic in the second round.

The Buckinghamshire native missed just five darts at a double and fired in two spectacular three-figure finishes as she captivated the crowd sealing her victory with a sensational bullseye finish that set up a last 32 showdown with Chris Dobey.

Sherrock will return to face the 25th seed in the first session back after the Christmas break.

"I'm still waiting for it all to sink in. It's not sunk in yet and now it's not going to! I don't know how I'm going to sleep tonight… my adrenaline is going to be going! I can't believe it," she said on stage afterwards.

"I've just proved that we can beat anyone. I've beaten two of the best players that there are in the world and if that doesn't say that women can play darts, I don't know what will."

The 25-year-old sunk a showstopping bullseye for the victory amid chaotic scenes that left her on the brink of tears.

"I thought, 'Yes you've actually hit a bull' and it was amazing," she added afterwards.

"When it went in there was a sigh of relief, because I tried my best to get it back to two each and just thought that I couldn't let it go because I didn't want it to go to a last set. So, when it went in it was like a sigh of relief."
