16-year-old Luke Littler's [remarkable journey](https://defector.com/darts-world-captivated-by-16-year-old-lad-who-loves-kebabs) in the World Darts Championship ended as runner-up to Luke Humphries. Despite being his fifth major event and ranked 164th, Littler's path was notable, beating former champions and showcasing resilience. Known for his composure and crowd engagement, he practices darts just 30-60 minutes a day. Having left school to pursue darts full-time, Littler has secured a spot in the top 32, joining the PDC Tour. His immediate celebration plans included a kebab and Fanta.
