Wayne Warren: The oldest darts world champion in history

The full results and round-ups from the 2020 BDO World Darts Championships, which took place from January 4-12 at the Indigo in the O2.

The 43rd staging of the BDO's major showpiece is over after a record-breaking climax at the Indio inside the O2, where Wayne Warren became the oldest darts world champion aged 57.

The Welshman's victory over compatriot Jim Williams meant he also became the fourth player from his country to lift the famous trophy after Leighton Rees, Richie Burnett and Mark Webster

Japan's Mikuru Suzuki also defended her ladies crown in the absence of Fallon Sherrock by defeating Lisa Ashton.

Here, you can look back on the tournament with all the results and round-ups, plus there's details of past winners.

BDO World Championship history

THE MEN

The BDO World Darts Championship began in 1978, when Leighton Rees triumphed over a future three-time winner John Lowe.

The likes of Eric Bristow, Jocky Wilson, Keith Deller, Dennis Priestley and Phil Taylor got their hands on the famous trophy before the breakaway of the PDC in 1994.

Raymond van Barneveld became the second-most successful player in the competition's history behind five-time champion Bristow when lifting the trophy on four occasions between 1998 and 2005 before he eventually left to the PDC.

Glen Durrant matched Bristow's record of winning the title in three successive years thanks to his triumphs in 2017-2019 before moving to the PDC.

Martin 'Wolfie' Adams has also won it three times while Scott Waites and Ted Hankey are recent names to have become multiple winners.

THE WOMEN

The women's World Championship was introduced in 2001, with Trina Gulliver beginning an era of dominance with seven successive titles before Russian sensation Anastasia Dobromyslova dethroned her.

Twelve months later Francis Hoenselaar gained revenge on Trina Gulliver for five previous final defeats by defeating her 2-1 but the Englishwoman bounced back with two more back-to-back titles.

Dobromyslova reminded the world of her talents in the next two editions as she lifted the trophy for the second and third times but the runner-up in 2013 - Lisa Ashton - would go one better a year later.

The Lancashire Rose has won four of the last five World Championships, with Gulliver edging out Deta Hedman for her 10th crown in 2016.
