Luke Littler has caused a stir at the PDC World Darts Championship, after becoming the youngest finalist in the competition's history.

The 16-year-old has had an incredible run in what is his debut in the tournament and defeated former PDC champion Rob Cross in the semi-final 6-2.

Littler is the youngest person to reach the final, overtaking Kirk Shepherd who was 21 years and 88 days old in 2008.

Speaking to Sky Sports after reaching the final, Littler said: "I've got to stay focused, be Luke Littler and relax. It's beyond believable. I only set a goal of winning one game and coming back after Christmas and I'm still standing.

"I can't imagine lifting the trophy. I have to just beat whoever is in front of me. I've got to stay mature, got to be myself and keep myself to myself."

Littler started the tournament ranked 164th in the world and had a provisional ranking of 50 heading into the semi-finals, BBC Sport reports.

He could rise as high as ninth in the rankings and win £500,000 if he is successful in the final.

Who will Luke Littler be facing in the final?

Littler will be facing Luke Humphries in the final, who is currently the world number one, and will appropriately be the toughest test Littler has faced.

Humphries beat Scott Williams 6-0 in his semi-final and has now won 18 games in a row.

Discussing facing Littler Humphries told Sky Sports: "I've seen the way he's played many, many times but when you come on this stage it can be a lot tougher but he's just proved that he's got a lot of bottle.

"Nothing is going to phase him. I'm probably going to have to play the game of my life.

"I've got an uphill task and hopefully we can give the people one of the best world finals ever seen."

The final is set to take place at 7.30pm on Wednesday, January 3 and will be shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Darts.
