Fallon Sherrock plans to mark her record-breaking darts triumph by donating to a charity close to her heart.

Sherrock, 25, became the first woman to beat a man at the PDC World Championships as she defeated Ted Evetts 3-2 at Alexandra Palace.

She was a 2000-1 shot before the match and broke down in tears after the stunning victory, which will see her pocket £7,500.

Sherrock appeared on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday morning and confirmed her plans to donate her winning board to the National Autistic Charity.

Her five-year-old son Rory is supported by the charity and Sherrock is keen to repay the staff that work tirelessly.

Fallon Sherrock talks to the press

Sherrock, who developed kidney disease in 2014, put her skills to the test against presenter Piers Morgan - picking up a routine victory.

On her success, she added: "I have always had the game but us women have never had the opportunity to prove it.

"I proved to myself and everyone else that women can play darts against men - and we can beat them.

"There was a lot of pressure going into the game but I forgot all about it."

Evetts had lost his throw in the opening leg of the deciding set, as Sherrock - cheered on by the vocal support at a packed Alexandra Palace - moved 2-0 ahead.

The 22-year-old held his next arrows - but another big score from Sherrock left her with three match darts at double 18.
