Female darts player Fallon Sherrock is celebrating her second historic win against a man this week at the World Championships.
The 25-year-old Englishwoman eliminated Number 11-ranked Mensur Suljobic with a 3-1 win in the second round of the PDC World Championship on Saturday evening.
Sherrock’s victory followed her 3-2 win on Tuesday against Ted Evetts, which made her the first female player to beat a man at the sport’s flagship event.
The former women’s world championship runner-up, from Milton Keynes, clinched victory against Suljovic by hitting a bullseye.
She put her hand to her mouth in astonishment as the energetic crowd celebrated at Alexandra Palace in north London.
Shortly after the win she tweeted a picture of herself with fellow darts player Corrine Hammond, with the caption: “Really buzzing now…! I have done it again! OMG.”
Tennis legend and gender equality campaigner Billie Jean King was among those to congratulate Sherrock, tweeting: “#Gamechanger.”
Sherrock was just one of two women playing in the tournament, with women’s world champion Mikuru Suzuki edged out by James Richardson last Sunday.
