English darts stopper James Wade has been released from Leverkusen hospital after three days and has returned to his home base. Last weekend he had become unwell in the run-up to his semifinal against Dimitri Van den Bergh at the European Darts Open in Leverkusen, Germany.

“I will take the necessary time to fully recover and will only play again when the time is right,” said 39-year-old Wade via the darts association PDC. The Englishman is already fitting for the Premier League games in Sheffield this week.
Wade, who has won 11 major titles at the PDC, suffered from cardiac arrhythmias, high blood pressure, nausea and dizziness. Due to his forfeit, Dimitri Van den Bergh qualified for the final of the European Darts Open, which was donated with 164,000 euros, without playing. He lost 8-5 to the Dutch topper Michael van Gerwen.
