Darts is in uproar over sickening racist jokes made by legendary announcer Martin Fitzmaurice at a tournament on Sunday.
Fitzmaurice, whose chanted catchphrase "Let's... play... darts!" is famous throughout the game, made the offensive comments at an international match between Scotland and England being played in Fife.
The British Darts Organisation and the Scottish Darts Association have both condemned Fitzmaurice for his comments. The compere himself has apologised, but claimed that, "It was banter. I apologise if I offended anybody."
The BDO has issued a full statement decrying the darts MC for lines such as "What's black and eats bananas? Half of London," and "What's the difference between a P*** and ET? ET went home."
"The British Darts Organisation apologises unreservedly for the fact that racially offensive comments were made by MC Martin Fitzmaurice at the BDO British Internationals in Scotland," the statement read.
"The BDO wishes to make it clear that it does not tolerate racism in any shape or form, and a full enquiry is already taking place into this regrettable incident. In accordance with BDO rules on racism, Martin Fitzmaurice has been made fully aware of the seriousness of his actions and will be required to face a disciplinary hearing in front of the BDO Board."
The BBC also condemned Fitzmaurice: "As someone who has appeared in previous tournaments we have televised we are appalled by the alleged remarks."
Fitzmaurice's racist comments are just the latest high-profile incident to smear the reputation of the sport. Darts was similarly rocked two weeks ago when a 'fan' spat at world champion Phil Taylor as he walked into the arena for a match.
