Phil Taylor has been knocked out of the World Darts Championship after a 4-3 defeat in the third round by Jelle Klaasen.

Klaasen, winner of the 2006 BDO World Championship, got off to the perfect start - snatching the first set with the darts in hand.

Taylor bounced back to win the second without response from the Dutchman, before Klaasen pummeled the board with terrific scoring and an average of 108 to win the third and take a 2-1 lead.
