Former rugby league player Steve Prescott, MBE, has been admitted to hospital after taking part in The Race to the Grand Final. He had to swim, run, cycle and canoe from Hull to Manchester, but it left him with severe stomach pains.
Prescott is being treated for a malfunctioning bowel and is said to be responding well to treatment. He will remain in hospital, under medical observation, for the next day or so.
