Mor­ris­sey treated for can­cer

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

FOR­MER Smiths front­man Mor­ris­sey says he has been treated for can­cer and hinted he might be ready to re­tire from mu­sic al­to­gether.

The Big Mouth singer can­celled a string of US gigs this year and has al­ready re­vealed he had been treated for a con­di­tion which in rare cases can lead to can­cer.

In an in­ter­view with Span­ish news­pa­per El Mundo, he said: “They have scraped can­cer­ous tis­sues from me four times al­ready, but who cares. If I die, then I die. And if not, then I don’t. Right now I feel good. I am aware that in re­cent pho­tos I look un­well, but that is what ill­ness does. I’m not go­ing to worry about that…I’ll rest when I’m dead.”

Mor­ris­sey, cur­rently on tour in Europe, started writ­ing a novel after the un­ex­pected suc­cess of his me­moirs and said the book was com­ing along well and sug­gested he might be­come a full-time writer.

He said: “It will prob­a­bly be pub­lished next year and with luck I will be able to stop singing for­ever, which would make many peo­ple happy.”

babe Kim­ber­ley Gar­ner showed off her up­per classes in this cleav­age-en­hanc­ing frock.

The blonde, 24, was guest of hon­our at the London premiere of new rom-com this week, along­side the film’s stars Lily Cole and Sam Claflin.

But it was Kim­ber­ley’s fan­tas­tic TOFF RACK that was draw­ing all the at­ten­tion as the re­al­ity telly lovely showed-off the as­sets that made her fa­mous in a skin tight black dress. THE English Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (FA) has been heav­ily crit­i­cised for fail­ing to tackle ho­mo­pho­bia, racism and sex­ism, as the Lib­eral Democrats backed a ma­jor in­de­pen­dent re­view of the game.

Ho­mo­pho­bic chant­ing should be made a crim­i­nal of­fence in line with racist chants, the Lib Dems say – with gay and bi­sex­ual fans warn­ing abuse con­tin­ues to “plague” the beau­ti­ful game.

Ac­tivists heard that stew­ards should be bet­ter trained to deal with ho­mo­pho­bic chants while the chair­man of a gay foot­ball team in Manch­ester told how it took seven months for the FA’s dis­ci­plinary process to pun­ish those re­spon­si­ble for some of the worst ho­mo­pho­bic and racist abuse they had ex­pe­ri­enced.

Foot­ball’s win at all costs men­tal­ity is also of con­cern due to the fi­nan­cial risks clubs are tak­ing, the Lib Dems say.
