Fans couldn't get enough of Ricky Evans as he pulled a hilarious face after hitting a three-second 180 at the World Darts Championship.
The 32-year-old more than lived up to his 'Rapid' nickname at Ally Pally on Friday (December 23) evening, putting in a fine showing against world No. 13 Joe Cullen. He came up slightly short in his quest to make it to the third round.
But Evans was entertaining fans even en route to a 3-1 defeat. Just before Cullen wrapped up the win, he produced a blistering perfect score – with his wide-mouthed reaction leaving viewers in stitches.

"Gotta love Ricky," argued a third, while a fourth joked: "The face you pull when your mum says Christmas dinner is ready."
One person said: "Just Rapid Ricky Evans being rapid." And another posted a compilation of his seven match 180s – which lasted less than 30 seconds – and pleaded: "Get him in the Premier League."

A disappointed Evans took to Twitter after the match, explaining how he's been plagued by illness. He posted: "Gutted to come out on the wrong end of that one! I started too slowly, and just couldn't claw it back in the end.
"All the best to Joe though, he deserved the win. I'll be back in 2023. Thanks to everyone that's supported me, and to my sponsors.
"I want my bed & my fan!!! 10 days of illness has literally ruined me, I look bad but wow I feel 10xtimes worse!!! Played ok considering…big thanks for all your nice messages & support."
