James Wade has been widely criticised for his behaviour during his 3-2 win of Seigo Asada in the second round of the PDC Darts World Championships. On stage was seen celebrating in his opponent's face after winning the second set, and he was far from gracious after his victory.
On the incident between the pair, Wade came out fighting and said:
"I kept giving it to him, I wanted to hurt him, I wanted to really hurt him in his face and I wanted to progress. That was for my son and for the UK."
In a bizarre interview, he said: "I dug in deep there. It's a magnificent feeling. I could have easily lost that. I've done it for my son, for my country, so it's good,"
“I didn’t think he had that game in him. I really didn’t. Perhaps i felt that if he had that game in him I would have prepared a little bit differently. How I won that game I don’t know. It’s about time that is because I’ve lost so many games here that I shouldn’t have lost.”
His arrogance was plain to see in the interview but he looked relieved to have made it through and avoided an upset. The interview took an odd turn when Wade came out with an unbelievable comment about his child:
“My son that is ten weeks old he text me, he is quite advanced and he said: ‘Dad please don’t lose.’"
Didn’t happen James. You can see the outrageous clip down below.
