Richard John Gwynne, often known as John Gwynne, was born on April 23, 1945. At the age of 77, he succumbed to cancer on July 9, 2022. He was a reporter, English instructor, and sports analyst. Gwynne provided commentary for the PDC darts competitions, which were broadcast on Sky Sports.

He declared his impending retirement in the summer of 2013 in February. His final game for Sky Sports was the 2016 World Championship. His induction into the PDC Hall of Fame took place in 2014. Later in 2014, Gwynne started commentating on BDO darts events for Eurosport, including the BDO World Championship, Winmau World Masters, and Six Nations Cup.

He occasionally provided commentary on Sky Sports during the PDC World Championship’s preliminary stages in the years that followed, but he didn’t do so at all in 2020. But he worked very hard to produce Talk Sport’s radio coverage of the match. In 1980, he covered the speedway at Belle Vue in Manchester for Piccadilly Radio.

With the phone-based business Cricket Call, he worked as a paid match analyst for the Lancashire County Cricket Club. He performed like this between 1988 and 1991. He provided commentary for the Six-a-Side World Cup matches held by the International Socca Federation.

In collaboration with David Mitchell and with a preface written by Jeff Stelling, he released his autobiography, “Soccer Satisfied,” in September 2020.
