DANCING Dimitri has shown the talent to match his entertaining walk-ons during his emergence as a new star from Europe in recent years - and claimed big-stage glory in the 2020 World Matchplay.

The Belgian ace was a winner in his first PDC youth tour event in 2013, and after joining the circuit full-time the following year added three victories in 2014, two in 2015 and another in 2016.

The youngster's 2014 success earned him a PDC Tour Card to join the ProTour circuit, and he went on to make his TV debut at the 2015 World Series of Darts Finals before defeating Ian White on his World Championship debut.

His 2016 Development Tour success was followed by qualification for the Grand Slam of Darts and a run to the semi-finals of the World Youth Championship, a debut in the Players Championship Finals and his second World Championship appearance.

Van den Bergh claimed two further Development Tour titles in the first half of 2017 before enjoying a run to the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Championship, losing 5-4 to eventual winner Rob Cross.

His progress into the world's top 32 continued alongside a run to a World Series final at the 2018 German Darts Masters, where Mensur Suljovic denied him the title.

However, Van den Bergh's runs to further televised quarter-finals at the 2020 World Championship and UK Open were followed by the biggest triumph of his career so far as he won the World Matchplay.

After defeating Nathan Aspinall and Joe Cullen, Van den Bergh then saw off Adrian Lewis, Glen Durrant and Gary Anderson as he claimed the Phil Taylor Trophy.
