DARTS legend Andy Fordham passed away last week at the age of 59 following a battle with various health issues.
A spokesperson confirmed to SunSport that The Viking passed away in hospital on Thursday morning after suffering major organ failure.
It was revealed how the popular thrower last year underwent major bowel surgery before contracting Covid-19 at the start of 2021.
A favourite of the British darts circuit, Fordham won the 2004 BDO World Darts Championship during a prestigious and full-throttle career.
Fordham once weighed 31 stone and downed 25 bottles of lager a day before tackling his health issues – but despite shedding the pounds, his darts career began to slump and he took time off to re-hone his skills.
