The current world number one, Michael van Gerwen has enjoyed an extraordinary career to establish himself as one of the sport's all-time greats.

A teenage wonderkid when he broke through to win the 2006 World Masters in the BDO, the Dutchman would wait six years to pick up his next televised title at the 2012 World Grand Prix, a victory which sparked a golden run of success.

A two-time World Youth Championship finalist who honed his skills in the early years of the PDC's Youth Tour - having initially joined the PDC circuit in 2007 - Van Gerwen has been the world's dominant player since 2013.

His comeback win over Mervyn King in Dublin opened the floodgates for a sensational haul of titles, though he had to wait eight months for his next at the 2013 Premier League Play-Offs.
 
Wins at the Dubai Darts Masters and Players Championship Finals followed, before Van Gerwen became a World Champion for the first time in January 2014.
 
Another two World Series titles were picked up by ‘the green machine’ in 2014 along with another World Grand Prix and the European Championship.
 
The World Matchplay, UK Open, Grand Slam and Masters titles proved more elusive but his first year of unrivalled dominance in 2015 rectified the missing gaps in his glittering trophy cabinet.
 
Van Gerwen completed his set of televised PDC titles in October 2019 as he won the Champions League in Leicester.
