Phil 'The Power' Taylor won his 16th world darts title by beating Michael van Gerwen 7-4 in an absorbing PDC World Championship final.

Van Gerwen started brightly, shrugging off a 170 checkout from Taylor in the second leg to lead by two sets to nil.

Taylor, 52, battled back to level, but fell behind again as the Dutchman surged 4-2 ahead at Alexandra Palace.

However, the Englishman won the next five sets as Van Gerwen's form fell away, sealing victory with a double 16.
