Former Formula One commentator Murray Walker has been diagnosed with cancer.
The 89 year old told the BBC that he had been diagnosed with a form of lymphatic system cancer, but said that the condition was treatable.
"They've caught it incredibly early. It's treatable, the doctors say my condition is mild and I'm very hopeful", Walker said.
Walker, who was diagnosed with the illness during tests after breaking his pelvis in a fall last month, will undergo chemotherapy over the next few months.
His distinctive commentating style became synonymous with motor racing as he covered the sport for more than half a century, before his retirement in 2001.
