Former international footballer John Hartson was released from hospital yesterday where he was having cancer treatment.

The ex-Arsenal and Celtic striker had been in the care of the cancer team at Singleton Hospital in Swansea after being transferred there from the critical care unit.

A statement from the hospital’s Trust said: “John Hartson has completed the first phase of his chemotherapy treatment and has been discharged from hospital. He will now continue his chemotherapy treatment as an outpatient.”

His family said in a statement: “John is glad to be back with his family, and ready to face the next steps in his chemotherapy.”

Hartson was admitted to hospital last month for emergency surgery for testicular cancer which had spread to his brain.
