Michael van Gerwen won his third successive European Championship title with a record-breaking 11-1 demolition of Mensur Suljovic in Belgium.
World number one Van Gerwen averaged 111.62, the highest in a televised ranking final, as he took little over 30 minutes to beat the Austrian.
The 27-year-old Dutchman has now won 22 titles in 2016, including the UK Open, World Matchplay and World Grand Prix.
“I played absolutely phenomenally in the final,” said Van Gerwen.
“Everything I wanted went in and I’m absolutely over the moon. I’m feeling great about this performance.
“Mensur is the most underestimated player in the PDC, I think, and he’s a top-class player. This was his first final, but he is someone we have to look out for.”
Suljovic, 44, who beat 16-time world champion Phil Taylor in the quarter-finals in Hasselt, is now ranked seventh in the PDC order of merit and on course for a place in the 2017 Premier League.
