Cor­bisiero re­lapse

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport -

Alex Cor­bisiero, the former Eng­land and Bri­tish and Ir­ish Lions prop, has re­vealed that his tes­tic­u­lar can­cer has spread.

The 32-year-old an­nounced in March that last year he had been di­ag­nosed with the dis­ease.

Af­ter surgery and chemo­ther­apy to re­move a large swelling, the man who scored for the Lions in their se­ries-clinch­ing win over Aus­tralia in 2013, thought the bat­tle was be­hind him. But he re­vealed that the can­cer had spread and that he is un­der­go­ing treat­ment.

The former Northamp­ton Saint posted on In­sta­gram: “I’m men­tally and phys­i­cally in a good place and stay­ing pos­i­tive through­out this roller coaster of ups and downs. I am very grate­ful for all the love and sup­port.”
