Australian darts star Kyle Anderson died age 33.

Anderson turned professional in 2014 and represented Australia four times in the PDC World Cup of Darts alongside Simon Whitlock, reaching the 2018 semi-finals.

He is one of eight players to hit a nine-dart finish at the PDC World Championship.

Anderson returned to his home city of Perth at the start of 2020, opting to remain in Australia ahead of the birth of his second child.

He relinquished his PDC Tour Card earlier this year.

"We send our condolences and best wishes to Kyle's family and friends at this terribly sad time, particularly his wife and children," said PDC president Barry Hearn.

"Kyle's achievements in his short-lived career were outstanding, notably his Auckland Darts Masters win, and a fitting reward for the sacrifices he made to follow his dream.

"He was a popular player on the tour and his talent and dedication made him an inspiration to other players around the world."

The Professional Darts Players Association tweeted: "So sad to wake up to the news today that Kyle Anderson has passed away, our sincere condolences to all his family and friends. He will be sadly missed."
