Dimi Van den Bergh almost breaks microphone screaming as he beats Peter Wright

Dimitri Van den Bergh almost broke a microphone with his screaming after dumping Peter Wright out of the World Matchplay on Thursday.

The world number nine produced a stunning comeback to recover from 5-1 down after six legs, winning 10 legs in a row before triumphing 16-14 in their quarter-final. He struggled to keep his emotions under control, producing a hilarious post-match interview on stage at Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

The interview descended further into chaos the longer it went on, with Van den Bergh screaming into the microphone by the end as he exclaimed: “Woooo! Oh yeaaaah! Come On! I don’t know what to do!”

He then fist pumped several times in the direction of the crowd as he made his way off the stage, having booked his place in Saturday's semi-finals.

Earlier in the interview, Van den Bergh was able to explain: “It’s a massive difference. I’ve got to look up over there, I’ve got my mum standing next to my girlfriend now.

"Which I’m going to marry next year, the 29th of July, oh yeah! My life is going amazing. Oh I cannot wait to be back.”

He also touched on his slow start to the match and subsequent comeback as he added: "I don't know what to do. Wow. The first five legs I went 4-1 down and I was like 'Dimi, you're feeling so good, you're feeling like you can do everything, what's going on?'

"And I was like 'Uh, this is going to be a repeat of last year in the final, come on.' And all of a sudden I managed to make it 5-5 after the first 10 legs and I was like 'get in, come on.'

"I think I won five out of five to go 10-5 up and he came back to 12-12 and I was like 'how did I let that happen? What did I do? Come on.'"

The DreamMaker's dramatic win over Wright has set up a mouth-watering semi-final contest against Michael van Gerwen this weekend.

Van Gerwen also won 16-14 on Thursday night as he saw off a late comeback from Nathan Aspinall to advance. The tournament will conclude on Sunday, with the two remaining quarter-finals scheduled to take place on Friday.

Van den Bergh will be looking to reach his third World Matchplay final in a row when he faces Van Gerwen, having won the tournament in 2020 by beating Gary Anderson. He lost last year's final, though, with Peter Wright beating him 18-9.
