In a post-match TV interview, Dutch thrower Harms, 34, claimed his Scottish rival was responsible for breaking wind on stage.
“It definitely came from table-side and it was eggs, rotten eggs, but not from me,” Anderson said.
Among the many dark arts darts players have tried over the years, breaking wind is the one that goes unnoticed to the TV cameras and punters.
Anderson added: “One player did it quite a lot but I’m not going to say any names.
“I have restricted movement in lifting my left arm and my back is still bad, it’s been a year now like that,” he said.
