Kyle Anderson has tested positive for COVID-19 also known as the Coronavirus, his management have confirmed. As far as it is known, ‘The Original’ is the first known darts player to contract the virus which has become a global pandemic.

Anderson like many travelled back to be with his family in Australia ten days ago at the offset of the outbreak; from there he contracted Coronavirus.

His management released this statement following the positive test: “I have just had a FaceTime call off Kyle telling me (his manager Mac Elkin) he tested positive for Covid-19; he is in good spirits but is now back in isolation on his own in a farm house in Mount Morgan. Tara and Charles both tested negative and are both back in the family home.”

His manager Elkin will be providing updates on Anderson’s health in the coming few weeks: “I will be having regular calls with Kyle so will keep everybody updated; it goes without saying that we all wish him a speedy recovery; but it also stresses the need to follow the guidelines set out by the government, we need to beat this disease together as one.”
