Darts history-maker Fallon Sherrock has pulled out of the British Internationals at Skegness in April. 

The 25 year-old was set to compete in the annual event between England, Scotland and Wales but will now not take part due to the coronavirus outbreak. 

She announced the news on Twitter and wrote: "Hi everyone, just wanted to let the @EDOdarts , my fellow team members and the fans know that due to the current situation I will not be participating in the British Internationals in Skegness in 2 weeks. Please all keep safe and well and stay positive."

The Brit created history last year when she became the first woman to beat a man at the PDC World Championships, when she defeated Ted Evetts in the first round.

She followed it up with another win against Mensur Suljovic before she lost to Chris Dobey in the third round. 

Since then she has taken part in this years PDC Q School, the Premier League Darts event as a 'challenger' and has teamed up with Italian footballer Luca Toni at the Celebrity Darts World Cup.
