DARTS bosses are set to offer support and counselling to struggling Callan Rydz.
The Newcastle thrower – a 2022 world championship quarter-finalist – was thrashed 6-1 by Kim Huybrechts in the first round of Czech Darts Open on Friday.
After that match, the 24-year-old posted an X-rated message on Facebook, apologising for his loss and claiming he was in "one horrible f***ing place".
The North East ace also revealed he was deeply upset that fans had attacked him for his poor performance in the Czech Republic.
Representatives at the PDC have told SunSport that they have reached out to Rydz to check in on his mental state.
And the Professional Darts Players Association has a range of services behind-the-scenes that can help "The Riot" during these difficult moments.
