Former Arsenal and Manchester United striker Robin van Persie got into the spirit at the Premier League Darts on Thursday, cheering on Michael van Gerwen with a traffic cone hat on his head.

Van Gerwen beat world champion Rob Cross and Michael Smith to take the title for a fourth time and third in a row.

And the Dutchman was cheered on by a familiar face at London's O2 Arena, as Netherlands international footballer Van Persie - also sporting a Van Gerwen shirt and a pair of fetching yellow sunglasses - offered his support.

The 34-year-old has been in fine form since returning to Feyenoord in January, scoring five goals in 12 Eredivisie appearances and helping the club to KNVB Cup glory.
