For decades now, Phil 'The Power' Taylor has dominated the darting circuit but after winning 16 World Championships and six PDC Player of the Year awards, the 56-year-old has announced his retirement plans.
Following his defeat to Raymond van Barneveld at the World Championships over the New Year period, Taylor said: "It's my last year so I'm not going to put myself under too much pressure - I don't worry about it anymore. I think competitive-wise [this will be my last year]."
As well as 16 World titles, Taylor won 216 professional tournaments during his incredible career, including 84 major titles, but 2017 could be the end for the Stoke-On-Trent born champion.
Days after the Van Barneveld defeat, Taylor said:
"Whatever I earn at the end of this year that will go towards my rankings and if that qualifies me for anything in 2018 then I will play, if not then I'll bow out."
"I will still do the Premier League if I'm invited but I can't chase the points like these youngsters do now."
If you're like me, and you've watched Darts for years and years, you simply cannot imagine the Sport without Phil Taylor.
