Andy Fordham, a former world darts champion, has died at the age of 59.
Andy Fordham, a former darts world champion, died at the age of 59, barely months after catching Covid-19 and admitting he was “terrified” of death. For years, the dynamic footballer known as The Viking had struggled with major health issues. He passed away yesterday, surrounded by his wife Jenny. It is unknown what caused his death.
Tributes came in for the Bristol-born father of two almost immediately. Adrian Lewis, a former world champion, stated, “Sad to hear the demise of a legend.” “Such terrible news, a very great fella,” tweeted darts presenter Dave Clarke.
Fordham used to be 31st in weight and drank 25 bottles of lager every day. He did, however, lose a significant amount of weight before acquiring coronavirus in January.
“My biggest fear is waking up one morning, not being able to breathe, and being transported in the back of an ambulance — never seeing my wife or children again,” he stated at the time.
