Phil Taylor doesn't like question on Sky Sports, swears on live TV and makes more enemies

Did Phil Taylor not get what he wanted for Christmas?

The darts legend was in foul humour on Thursday night, in spite of the fact that he'd just secured himself a spot in the quarter-finals via a 4-2 victory over Kim Huybrechts.

'The Power' will face old foe Raymond van Barneveld in the next round of the World Darts Championships but, in the wake of his win, it was Taylor's interview rather than his proficiency from the oche that set social media alight.

Taylor took his seat in the Sky Sports studio where he fielded questions from Wayne Mardle, who asked about Taylor's struggles against Kevin Painter in an earlier round.

Taylor beat Painter 4-0, which he hastened to remind Mardle, but not before the 16-time world champion accused the pundit of trying to put him "in the shit."

People usually love the chaos that typically accompanies a swear word being uttered on live television but it's safe to say that Taylor's reaction was not well-received whatsoever.
