Trueman diagnosed with Cancer

Yorkshire and England cricket legend Fred Trueman has been diagnosed with small cell carcinoma, a rare form of cancer.

It is believed that doctors have caught it early, and it is hoped by his many fans and colleagues that the 75 year old will make a full recovery.

Trueman has now been discharged from Airedale Hospital.

It was originally believed that he was being treated for tiredness and anaemia.

Fred Trueman is considered to be one of the finest fast bowlers to have ever drawn breath, and was the first bowler to claim 300+ wickets in Test cricket.

He obtained this record despite missing a large number of Test matches, due in part to the belief that he had a discipline problem.
