Wright pays colourful hair tribute to darts legend Bristow

Peter Wright paid tribute to the late Eric Bristow in a unique way as the darts world honoured the five-time world champion in Sheffield on Thursday.

Current and former players took to the stage at the FlyDSA Arena to hold a minute's applause in memory of Bristow, who died last week at the age of 60.

Known for his colourful hair styles, Wright showed his respect for the player nicknamed the 'Crafty Cockney' by having Bristow's dart flight drawn on one side of his head for week 10 of the Premier League season.

The Scot played twice at the event, losing 7-2 to compatriot Gary Anderson before returning to the stage later in proceedings to record a 7-2 victory over Raymond van Barneveld.

Wright had been in tears on stage when Bristow's death was confirmed during the Premier League event at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.
