Darts player Keegan Brown has put his day job on the backburner as the NHS employee takes on extra shifts to help out during the coronavirus crisis.
The 27-year-old, ranked the 30th best player in the world, has swapped the oche for a hospital in the Isle of Wight in a bid to ease the strain on the NHS during the pandemic.
“I work in the blood-science lab as an assistant. But I have taken on extra hours to help support the service,” Brown told The Sun.

“I’m still trying to make time to practise — but feel like I am needed more at work for now.
“Currently I’m still working in the lab but my daily tasks are more varied due to the situation of Covid-19 and with us unfortunately being the only hospital on the island.
“Everyone is very determined and committed to play their part now. And I could not be prouder to be part of such a team.
“In some ways, yes, it’s much busier but in other areas it’s as normal. I’m not doing longer hours as such, just more days. This may change as circumstances change.”
