After the passing of Ray Wilkins yesterday, sport has lost another of its great characters tonight, aged 60.
His fierce rivalry with Jocky Wilson in the 1980s really raised the profile of darts, but there was a huge mutual respect, highlighted by Bristow's attendance at Jocky's funeral in 2012.
He's also widely credited with mentoring Phil Taylor who went on to be the greatest the game has seen.
He was disliked by some, but was a great character in a world with too many bland people.
