Phil Taylor Lost The Plot Live On Sky Sports Last Night
You would not have guessed Phil "The Power" Taylor had just come off the back off a win that booked his place in the World Darts Championship semi-finals with the way he was talking after the match.
Taylor had just ousted Kim Huybrechts with a 4-2 win and was called upon for an interview at the Sky Sports studio.
There he was quizzed by Wayne "Hawai 501" Mardle, who was doing punditry for Sky on the Darts action.
And he was asking Taylor about the difficulty he had against Kevin Painter earlier in the competition, despite the 56-year old's 4-0 win.
But Taylor was not happy with Mardle's line of questioning and uttered the words "you're gonna put me in the shit there".
It got extremely awkward.

Mardle himself commented on the awkward scenes that took place live on Sky Sports.
Anyway, @PhilTaylor The question I was trying to ask before you rudely interrupted me was, your composure seems to come and go, why is that?- Wayne Mardle (@Wayne501Mardle) December 29, 2016
Raymond van Barneveld will be Taylor's opponent in the quarter-finals, but something tells me there's more to come in this little Mardle-Taylor feud...
