Gabriel Clemens stormed into the Round of 16 at the Darts World Championship with an impressive race to catch up.
Thomas Müller shared the fever in front of the television.
London - "I was actually dead," stated a completely exhausted Gabriel Clemens after his 4:3 win against Jim Williams, who opened the door to the round of 16 of the Darts World Cup.
When he was 2:3 behind, he already had a match dart against him, but then turned the tables again.

Darts World Cup: Gabriel Clemens moves into the round of 16 - Thomas Müller cheers
"Somehow I managed to pull my head out of the noose," said "Gaga" on DAZN.
The Alexandra Palace in London was filled with around 750 German fans who could be heard loudly.
Many also watched the darts crime thriller in front of the TV sets.
Like Thomas Müller - the Bayern star was there with body and soul and was enthusiastic after the game on Twitter: "What a great darts match by Gabriel Clemens".
The "German Giant" meets either the Dutchman Danny Noppert or the Scotsman Alan Soutar in the round of 16.

Darts World Cup: Müller enthusiastic about the Clemens match – users remind him of the World Cup fiasco
Martin Schindler is also still in the competition, but in his third round match against top player Michael Smith he is an outsider.
Darts fan Müller keeps his fingers crossed for both Germans that they do better than he did at the World Cup in Qatar, which turned out to be a fiasco from a German perspective.
Some Twitter users have not yet forgiven him for the DFB-Aus in the preliminary round - and maliciously reply to Müller's darts tweet.
"Well Mr. Müller, that's the ONLY way to make it to the round of 16," commented one user.
"That's how you represent your country at a World Cup," teased another fan.

"Making a great World Cup game" would have been a great idea for Müller too, another fan takes up Müller's words with plenty of sarcasm.
The comments on the post are mostly positive.
Anyone who knows Müller knows that he sees his appearances at the World Cup critically enough.
How things will continue for him in the national team is still unclear.

In the emotion of leaving, he said: "It's an absolute disaster.
I don't know how things will continue." Even at Bayern Munich it's not entirely clear how things will continue with Müller.
Of course, there is no resignation issue there, but Nagelsmann apparently wants to reschedule his position.
