Gary Anderson Forced To Pull Out Of PDC Darts Tournament Due To Poor WiFi

Gary Anderson Forced To Pull Out Of PDC Darts Tournament Due To Poor WiFi

Gary Anderson has been forced to pull out of the PDC darts tournament due to poor wifi.

The two-time PDC world champion was poised to be one of 128 players taking part in the 'PDC Home tour' - an online darts competition set up to give fans their fix amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

But with the format seeing players throwing darts from their own home and hopping on a video call with their opponent that will be broadcasted, Anderson has come to the realisation that his internet speed is not up to scratch and he has subsequently withdrawn.

It's resulted in one of the most hilarious headlines in recent sporting history, which folks on social media can't get enough of.

"I was up for it but when we did tests of my WiFi, it's just not reliable enough," Anderson told The Sun.

"It doesn't surprise me. I struggle to pay bills online in my house, it's really frustrating."

We sincerely hope Sky Sports have put "Gary Anderson (wifi)" on their yellow ticker at the bottom but more seriously, the 49-year old should probably best get onto his network provide if he can't even do something as simple as pay his bills.
