Devon Petersen as well as playing also is a part of the Sky Sports Darts coverage which returned to screens with the World Matchplay in July.

Petersen who was part of the bubble for the PDC Summer Series returned to the Marshall Arena soon after; speaking to DartsNews, he discussed the coverage and how well it was received.

"I think they've done everything amazingly well. I think that they blew a lot of people minds away the way in which they handled the situation," said Petersen to DartsNews.

He continued: "I think the player's felt it a lot more because the players were playing a lot faster but that is generally what you have when you don't have the distractions of crowd noise and atmosphere; so I think it was different for the players but from a viewing perspective the production in which Sky put on was fantastic."

Memories of working with Dave Clark

As well as there being no crowd, Dave Clark wasn't involved as the host of Sky Sports' coverage after stepping down from the role; he discussed how he went from watching him to working with him and the effect his presence has.

"My memories go back before I even met Dave Clark, it goes back to when I was growing up and falling in love with sport; Dave Clark was obviously the face of darts, we used to get the dvd's.

He was obviously the guy who did the interviews and so on; I always had the vision I'd be sitting in the room with Dave Clark; he'd interview me because I'd won a match at the World Championship. I never thought it would come true in a sense."

"I obviously got to work alongside the man and got to know him on a deeper level and what a fantastic guy. The challenges he's faced and still the professionalism that he showed at his job itself as being the leading man in darts; with a smile and an infectious personality. He will be missed, you won't be able to replace a Dave Clark."

"I think he will forever live in our hearts; it's going to be different like everything else in 2020; but you have to obviously understand the man has made the decision."

"It's fantastic for a man who has a legacy like that to have the strength to say I think I've had enough; you have to applaud to his courage."
