2006 highlight: 13th world title.

Few people can have ruled their sport so convincingly as Taylor, who has been winning major tournaments for 20 years.

Nicknamed 'The Power', he powered to his 13th world darts championship with a 7-0 whitewash of Peter Manley in the PDC final.

Four rare defeats in televised tournaments came early in 2006.

But the Stoke thrower's accuracy returned with wins including a seventh World Grand Prix title and an eighth World Matchplay crown.
