DARTS fans at Alexandra Palace were on top form on Wednesday evening after watching Luke Littler on his PDC World Darts Championship debut.
Littler gave the greatest debut ever at the PDC World Championship with his thrilling 3-0 win over Dutchman Christian Kist.
But with the astonishing context that Littler is just 16 years old, the crowd at Ally Pally had the perfect chant to serenade him with.
During his post-match interview with Sky Sports, the crowd could be heard singing a brilliant six-word chant.
They could be heard chanting: "You've got school in the morning."
Littler kept his composure during the interview.

All this coming just six months after he took his GCSEs.
Littler, who is not allowed to wear a Paddy Power patch, drink alcohol, drive, bet, or vote due to his age, said: “If I average 106 in every game from now on, I’ve got a chance.
“All the nerves are out of the way now. This ranks at the top. It was crazy to see little kids with my own top on.
“It was a massive experience. The crowd were always singing. I’m glad they were on my side and it helped me get over the line even more.
“I couldn’t sleep on Tuesday night as I was so excited for this match.
“Walking on, I was nervous but when I stepped on to the stage, I said: ‘Wow.’ I didn’t want to go into my own shell. I wanted to be myself and I did.
“I will treat myself to a kebab. Get myself some bottles of Coke and bottles of Fanta.”
