Laura Woods sends Ally Pally wild after downing drink at the darts

What a legend

Nothing says Christmas time like when the PDC World Darts Championship is on your television screens.

Endless festivity, fun and some big names there as well, it’s become one of the most iconic things to watch with everybody wanting to be a part of the action at Alexandra Palace.

One of those lucky ones there is Laura Woods, who is currently working as part of the Sky Sports punditry team for the tournament, and she showed no intention to shy away as she was spotted with a drink in hand.

Cheered on by the thousands of fans in attendance to finish the drink off in one go, Woods duly obliged and was caught on video rising to the occasion and completing the challenge.

The cheer was as loud as when any player successfully lands a nine-dart finish. You have to admit, it’s impressive stuff isn’t it?

Tossing her cup in the air and raising her arms above her head before bowing, she basked in the glory, until she later revealed that unlike many of the spectators choice of drink, there was in fact no alcohol in hers.

The Sky Sports and talkSPORT presenter later took to her Instagram to confirm that she had opted for tea instead.

She said: “If you can’t beat them…” before a laughing face emoji.

“Off home for Christmas, Ally Pally you have been mega,” she added which was followed by a love heart eyes, target and love heart emoji.

After an exhilarating couple of weeks, the World Championship currently takes a short break for the Christmas period before returning again on 27 December as players battle it out to win the coveted prize, which is worth £2.5 million in prize money.
