THROWBACK VIDEO: Bristow becomes three-time World Champion at 1984 BDO World Darts Championship

With no BDO World Darts Championship taking place this year after the demise of the organisation, DartsNews looks back at some of the best moments and matches from the showpiece event.

Now to 1984 and Eric Bristow was out for some retribution after losing out to the unheralded Keith Deller the year before and he got it with a 7-1 win over Dave Whitcombe in the final.

He dropped one set in the entire tournament and faced Whitcombe who came from 4-2 down to beat Jocky Wilson 6-5 in the semi-finals but couldn't repeat the feat against the 'Crafty Cockney' who became a three time World Champion.
