PDC world champion Phil Taylor has revealed that he will continue to play darts for at least the next three years.
Taylor came from 2-0 down to defeat Michael van Gerwen 7-4 in the PDC World Championship final on New Year's Day to win his 16th world title.
After he defeated Raymond van Barneveld in the semi-finals, the 52-year-old hinted that he had become disillusioned with the sport, but he has now insisted that he is not ready to retire.
Taylor told Sky Sports News: "I'm not going to walk away, but I do need a a bit of a rest now.
"I will be doing some promotional work in Dubai later this month but I am going to treat it as a little holiday too, and then I will get ready for the Premier League.
"I will definitely keep playing until I am 55 and then we will see after that."
As a result of his victory on Monday night, Taylor maintained his position as world number one in the PDC Order of Merit.
