Darts legend Eric Bristow dies at 60


Five-time world champion Eric Bristow has died at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack, the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) has confirmed.

Bristow, born in Hackney Central and known as the "Crafty Cockney", won the world championship five times between 1980 to 1986 at the beginning of the sport's television boom, and also won five World Masters titles.
