Adrian Lewis will head into the Summer Series as one of only a few players not to be in action during lockdown after not being involved in the PDC Home Tour.

Lewis though has gone on a different type of journey though and that is a fitness journey as he has found new motivation during the Coronavirus pandemic which he will hope will pay dividends competitively.

“Me and the wife have been exercising. We’ve done it for three months, just doing the Tyson Fury workouts everyday and a couple of mile walk and bike ride at night. It’s been good,” said Lewis to the PDC.

“I hit a nine-darter this morning, so the weight loss must be helping! I think it will do over the long run, without a shadow of a doubt. If you’re fitter, you’re mentally fitter as well.”

“Everybody is in the same boat, so we’re going back. Nobody really knows what to expect, nobody knows what kind of form we’re in either. Haven’t played any competitive darts in the past four months but I think everybody is eager to get back playing again.”
