London (dpa) - Raymond van Barneveld's glorious darts career has ended. The 52-year-old Dutchman beat the American outsider Darin Young 1: 3 at the start of his last World Cup in London. For the five-time world champion, the surprising first-round end is a bitter setback and the low point of a negative development over the past years. Van Barneveld, who suffered a lot from the defeats as a professional, wanted to bring one last big surprise in London - but that was no longer enough.
