DUTCH legend Raymond is one of only three players in darting history to be crowned as a five-time World Champion following the success he has enjoyed during a glittering career.

Having made his BDO World Championship debut in 1991, he reached the final four years later before winning the title in 1998, 1999, 2003 and 2005.

He also won the World Masters, International Darts League and World Darts Trophy twice before joining the PDC circuit in 2006, a year which included a third IDL triumph.

Van Barneveld's immediate impact on the PDC saw him claim the UK Open title in 2006 before - as the 32nd seed - he claimed glory on his PDC World Championship debut, defeating Phil Taylor 7-6 in the classic final which ended with a sudden-death leg.

He retained the UK Open title in 2007 and also picked up the Las Vegas Desert Classic, and has also won two PDC World Cup of Darts events, the 2012 Grand Slam of Darts and 2014 Premier League titles to continue his success at the highest level.

Van Barneveld also became the first player to achieve a nine-dart finish in both the Premier League, in 2006, and PDC World Championship, in 2009, and has helped to inspire the growth of darts in the Netherlands during a superb career.
