Gerwyn Price admits he is already "looking forward to getting back playing" as the enforced break in PDC action begins on Thursday.

The planned Unibet Premier League night in Newcastle is the first PDC event to not take place as a result of the current global situation, with further tournaments in the coming weeks also having been postponed.

Like his PDC counterparts, Price is now based at home during the break in events, and told Sky Sports News: "I'm still practising on the board and doing what I can do, but apart from that really there's nothing else I can do.

"I'm lucky, I've got a little pool table and I'm relaxing in the garden when the weather's not too bad.

"I'm actually doing more now. When we're flat out playing darts, really that's my practice because we play practically every day of the week and then when I'm home I like to have some downtime with the family.

"Over the last couple of days, all I seem to be doing is just practising - it might be a blessing in disguise.

"I'm looking forward to getting back playing, not just in the Premier League but in the ProTours and Europeans as well. It's just a pity that this has come around now.

"I'm very disappointed - not just for myself but for the fans and everybody who pays their money and want to turn up and watch, and now they've got to wait for that.

"But it's just what needs to be done with this outbreak. Everybody needs to stay safe and be positive."
