Two-time world champion Adrian Lewis has announced he is taking a break from professional darts.
The 38-year-old, nicknamed ‘The Jackpot’, won back-to-back world titles at Alexandra Palace in 2011 and 2012, but has struggled to hit those heights in recent years.
Lewis tweeted: “Dear all, in particular my fans, I feel that your loyalty deserves an explanation for my absence from tournaments.
“After 20+ years I feel I need a break from the professional circuit for now. Massive thanks for the support from my fans & sponsors.
“Also I’d like to thank @OfficialPDC @PDPA_darts for the opportunity and last but not least my family. Cheers folks Ade.”
