Former England skipper Tony Greig diagnosed with lung cancer
Zeenews Sports Bureau
Australia: Former England captain and commentator Tony Greig has been diagnosed with lung cancer. Greig, 66, was initially diagnosed with bronchitis in May and tests conducted during the recent T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka revealed that he had a small lesion at the base of his right lung. On his return to Australia he had a lot of fluid removed from his right lung and tests revealed that he had lung cancer.
"I have had a few scrapes in my life and this is another one. Vivian (Tony's wife) and I are going to put the boxing gloves on and fight this like we've never fought anything before," Greig is quoted as saying by 'Sunday Telegraph'.
Greig , who played 58 test matches and 22 ODIs for England and is a highly regarded cricket commentator today, will undergo biopsy later this week to ascertain the stage of his cancer and to determine the required course of action.
