Netflix and Chill for the Iceman
Gerwyn Price has given a fascinating insight into the unglamorous new normal of darts as it returns in Milton Keynes tomorrow.
The double Grand Slam champion was in great spirits after taking the Covid-19 test on his arrival at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes.
But as he awaits results before the Summer Series kicks off tomorrow, The Iceman admits all he can do is Netflix and chill.
Price revealed: “I’ve done the test and now it’s being stuck in my room for up to 12 hours waiting for the result.
“This is an anxious wait, I’m waiting to see or not whether I can play. I don’t wan to be sat here for 12 hours and then have to drive home!
“The Covid-19 test is nowhere near as bad as some of the stuff says on social media. It goes to the back of your nose but nothing like it does on that video.
“That was what I was most scared about than anything but it was fine, it was nothing. Probably the throat was a bit worse because they did it for longer.
“It was nothing. I’m glad I’ve got it done now and hopefully it will be a good result.”
Price had himself all organised for life stuck in a hotel room for half a day but then left home without a vital component.
So he was left needing the help of fellow Welsh player Jonathan Worsley…
He laughed: “I’ve got a lead that goes from my phone to the TV so I can watch Netflix but I’ve only gone and forgotten my HDMI lead!
“So I stocked up on food from ASDA so I can put the stone back on that I lost so I’m stuck watching Come Dine With Me just chilling out in my room. There’s nothing else you can do apart from keep yourself amused.
“I spoke to Jonathan, he still was waiting to have his test after me so I asked him to go to ASDA and get me the lead for my phone and I can grab it off him tomorrow!”
