Phil Taylor believes Bedlington darts ace Chris Dobey poses a ‘big challenge’ ahead of their meeting in the first round of the World Championships this evening.
The 16-time World Champion will retire from professional darts after this year’s tournament, ending 30 years at the top of the sport.
Bowing out by winning a 17th World title would be the fairytale ending for the greatest player of all time, but the 57-year-old is under no illusions about the threat the north-east star poses.
“It will be a big challenge for me,” Taylor told the PDC’s official website.

“It’s my final World Championship and I want to enjoy it.”
