Darts announcer leaves players baffled by announcing wrong players name

Both players and fans alike were completely baffled at Alexandra Palace as the PDC darts announcer when he announced the wrong name.

As Keegan Brown prepared to take the stage on Tuesday afternoon, entering to Queen's 'Don't Stop Me Now', he was left pulling a face when PDC announcer John McDonald announced his opponent, Boris Krcmar, instead.

Despite looked baffled while surrounded by fans before the first round tie, Brown quickly shrugged it off and made his way towards the oche. As he climbed onto the stage, he made a joking gesture to McDonald before giving him a hug as the announcer clearly apologised.

The post said: "'There's only two Boris Krcmar's!'
