Nathan Grindal got more than be bargained for when he went to watch a darts tournament in Somerset.
Excited to be watching the televised match in person, Nathan had been having a good time until some other members of the crowd realised that with his long beard and hair he happened to bear more than a passing resemblance to Jesus. Soon afterwards the whole venue had erupted with chants of 'Jesus, Jesus' and 'Stand up if you love Jesus'. It didn't take long for Nathan to be escorted from the building by security guards over fears that the crowd's reaction to his presence was disrupting the players.
"I love darts, but I’m worried about ever going to see it live again," he said after having to make do with watching the match on TV. "It was all very weird and distressing. I didn’t go to the darts dressed as Jesus - I went as me."
"When darts fans saw bearded Nathan Grindal at a tournament, they thought they were witnessing not just a double top but a second coming."
