A look back at 25 years of Phil Taylor at the World Darts Championship where he has won an unprecedented 16 titles. It's over and out from The Power!
After winning two world titles at Lakeside, Taylor moved over to the PDC becoming the most dominant force in the game over three decades.
The titles kept coming for the Stoke-on-Trent thrower from 1994 when Soccer Saturday's very own Jeff Stelling was in the hot seat to present Sky Sports first edition of the tournament.
From that famous Jeremy Guscott drop goal to win the 1997 series for the British and Irish Lions in South Africa to England regaining The Ashes, European Ryder Cup success under Monty, and Andy Murray's first Grand Slam success, Taylor has pretty much seen it and done it all!
Click on the video above to see Taylor through the ages and we wish the craftsman of the oche a happy retirement from all of us at Sky Sports...
