Peter Wright set a new record for the highest ever recorded average in a live broadcast darts match with a staggering 123.5 at the Players Championship 29 event.

Snakebite posted his stunning mark during a 6-0 quarter-final win against Krzysztof Ratajski that featured two 11-darters, a pair of 12 darters and a further two legs in 13 and 14 darts.

The previous record broadcast average was 123.4, set by Michael van Gerwen in a 7-1 defeat of Michael Smith in the 2016 Premier League and Wright edged past it in a match streamed online.

Wright also averaged over 100 in three of his previous four matches before a semi-final defeat to eventual champion Brendan Dolan (click here for full event report).
