Scottish legend Anderson joined an elite group of players to win back-to-back World Championship titles with his successes in 2015 and 2016 at Alexandra Palace, cementing his name amongst the most successful players in the history of the sport.

A winner of both the International Darts League and World Darts Trophy events in 2007, when the cross-code events were staged in the Netherlands, Anderson joined the PDC circuit two years later.

After reaching the 2011 World Championship final, where he lost to Adrian Lewis, Anderson went on to gain revenge in the 2016 final having defeated Phil Taylor the previous year.

The Scot has also won the Premier League on two occasions, and in 2018 lifted the World Matchplay, UK Open and Champions League titles.

Anderson tasted World Cup success for the first time in June 2019 alongside teammate Peter Wright.
