Darts organisers insist events are Covid-safe after Van Barneveld tests positive

The organisers of the World Darts Championship insist all necessary precautions are in place to safeguard players and fans after Raymond van Barneveld tested positive for Covid-19.

The five-times world champion revealed he had tested positive after his 3-1 defeat by Rob Cross at Alexandra Palace on Thursday night. The Dutchman said he began to fell unwell after the second-round tie and later provided a positive test.

A spokesperson for the Professional Darts Corporation said: “We have been made aware of Raymond’s positive test and send him our best wishes for a speedy recovery.

“We are following approved protocols and have appropriate regulations in place around the championship, one of which is that all players and staff must produce a negative Covid test result on their return to the event after the Christmas break.”

Van Barneveld tweeted: “During the match I didn’t have any symptoms, but afterwards I started to realise that I was developing a shortness of breath and fever. I directly called my manager and he advised to go straight to my hotel room and to not give interviews in order to avoid any risk.

“At the moment I do suffer from fever and serious tiredness. The upcoming days I will stay in quarantine in London. We already spoke with Rob Cross and the PDC about the current situation. Stay safe.”
