Michael van Gerwen celebrates his victory

Michael van Gerwen produced a stunning display in the world championship semi-final to whitewash two-time champion Adrian Lewis and book his place in tomorrow's final.

The Dutchman will now be red-hot favourite against Peter Wright, who enjoyed a surprisingly comfortable 6-2 win against Australia's Simon Whitlock.

Lewis missed several chances in the early part of what was an eagerly-awaited encounter and Van Gerwen punished him mercilessly to run out a 6-0 winner with a three-dart average of 103.2.
