Video: Chelsea Legend Frank Lampard Tries His Hand at Darts…and is Awful

Ladies and gentlemen, please meet Frank ‘The Machine’ Lampard.

You might be familiar with plain old Frank Lampard; the goal-scoring midfielder of England and Chelsea fame, but ‘The Machine’ is Frank’s glitzy dart-playing alter-ego – but there’s just one slight problem: he’s terrible at darts.

Having recently announced he’s leaving MLS side New York City FC, Lampard is obviously keen to keep his options open, and perhaps a complete change to a less physically taxing sport could be required as he approaches his 39th birthday.

Frank stopped by the PDC World Darts Championships on Monday to try his luck at the oche in a celebrity challenge, but as you can see in the clip above, it’s clear his game needs a bit or work.

During his playing days at Stamford Bridge, few players could beat Lampard’s ice-cold calmness in-front of goal, and his terrific coordination.

Sadly, it seems age catches up with us all. It turns out ‘The Machine’ is human, just like the rest of us.
