Henderson on Coronavirus pandemic weight loss: "I'm only halfway to where I want to be"

John Henderson recently became a major champion for the first time with victory at the World Cup of Darts alongside Peter Wright.

Henderson looked back a few weeks on from that triumph and discussed it sinking in.

"It's taken a couple of weeks to sink in if I'm being honest. Every tournament I go to I come home and all the local people always gives me good congratulations even if I don't win something but when I went to Gibraltar, all the fellow professionals were coming up shaking hands and say well done, you deserve it and that's when it begins to sink in that I've won a major," said Henderson to Weekly Dartscast.

"It's my 11th season and I haven't even won a floor title so to kick off my maiden titles on the TV is fantastic. You're sitting in the back room watching Peter (Wright) playing and I think I was more nervous than Peter sitting watching."

Weight loss

During the pandemic, Henderson embarked on a weight loss journey like many in the darting world with 'The Highlander' discussing how he embarked on this.

"It's a no brainer that I had to lose weight but just in the pandemic, I take Veronica my wife down to the bus to get herself into a work and I go for a walk. It was out of boredom.

"I noticed a difference and people were commenting like John you look well and I just kept it up."

"I'm going to start again this week and I'm only halfway to where I want to be."
