The former Formula One commentator Murray Walker has been diagnosed with a form of lymphatic system cancer.

The 89-year-old told the BBC 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 last month, is to undergo chemotherapy over the next few months.
