Raymond van Barneveld dispelled any fears over his diabetes with a vintage comeback display against Gerwyn Price in Leeds on Thursday.
Van Barneveld came back from 5-3 down to beat Price and leave the Welshman still looking for his first win.
The 50-year-old Dutchman rediscovered his form with stunning finishes of 121, 101 and 89 to give him a 7-5 victory at the First Direct Arena.
