Wales and Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks said on Tuesday he is cancer-free, nearly seven months after being diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma.
The 24-year-old, who was diagnosed with the form of cancer in October, said he was looking forward to continuing his career.
Brooks has played 21 times for Wales, with 90 appearances for Bournemouth since joining from Sheffield United in 2018.
“Last week I met with my specialist having reviewed my final test results. I am delighted to say the treatment was successful and I can now say that I have been given the all clear and am now cancer free,” Brooks said in a statement on Twitter.
