- 61-year-old beaten 3-1 by Andy Boulton at Alexandra Palace
- World No 1 Van Gerwen beats Ryan Murray by same score
Deta Hedman was unable to make more history as she bowed out in the first round of the PDC World Championships at Alexandra Palace. Hedman was looking to follow in the footsteps of Fallon Sherrock, who made history by beating two men in last year’s tournament.
Hedman – the first black woman to compete at the event – was beaten 3-1 by Andy Boulton, who will go on to face Stephen Bunting for a place in the third round.
