Fallon Sherrock was allegedly subjected to tasteless sexist chanting from a minority of the crowd during Saturday’s Celebrity World Cup in Germany, according to German media outlet Sport1.
The third staging of the Pro Sieben Celebrity World Cup saw Sherrock make her debut in the event following her ground-breaking exploits at Alexandra Palace and the 25-year-old was partnered alongside Italian World Cup star Luca Toni.
Sherrock was one of six professionals featuring in the exhibition, alongside newly crowned world champion Peter Wright, world No 1 Michael van Gerwen, 16-time world champion Phil Taylor, Grand Slam champion Gerwyn Price and home favourite Max Hopp.
The majority of the capacity crowd at the Maritim Hotel in Bonn gave ‘The Queen of the Palace’ a rapturous reception, although a mindless minority reportedly directed chants of ‘ausziehen’, meaning to undress or take off, at Sherrock and Price’s doubles partner Sarah Harrison.
In terms of the tournament itself, Sherrock posted the first maximum of the competition as her and Toni locked horns with Price and Harrison, although the Welshman and the social media star came out on top in a closely-contested affair.
Sherrock and Toni defeated 16-time world champion Taylor and presenter Daniel Boschmann, with Fallon converting a clinical 71 finish on tops before pinning double 17 to triumph, although it wasn’t sufficient for them to progress to the semi-finals.
The event was won by World Championship runner-up Van Gerwen and former handball world champion Pascal Hens, with the pair overcoming Price and Harrison in the final.
However, MvG provided a moment of comedy in his group-stage clash against Hopp and presenter Frank Buschmann. The Dutchman required 69 although misheard George Noble’s call and took out 79. He celebrated in trademark style but was left red-faced after realising he had bust his score!
