Jose is the special one in Monday’s Home Tour action

Jose De Sousa took victory in the PDC Home Tour on Monday after a clean sweep.

The Portuguese-born player beat Robert Thornton and Keegan Brown without dropping a leg.

He won the group even before the end of his final game with Reece Robinson after claiming the third leg to take an unassailable lead at the top.

De Sousa completed a 5-1 win against Robinson to complete his unstoppable form from his home in Madrid.

He said: “It was really fantastic. All the players are good players, everyone knows it’s very difficult when you play like this.

“I don’t care about the average, I just played to win my legs. The big average helps though.

“I’ll keep going with my practice every day, with friends and sometimes alone. I’m staying at home so can’t do anything more.”

Brown was second, Robinson third and Thornton fourth on day 25 of the competition.

Brown exited on the 12th night after his WiFi stopped working.

He returned and was the favourite for the group but almost let an opening win slip through his grasp after he blew a 3-0 and 4-1 lead.

Robinson pulled it back to 4-4 and, after he missed the chance to win, Brown clinched a 5-4 victory.
