Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has vowed to give everything in the start of a new chapter of his life.
His championship club confirmed on Thursday that he has leukaemia and will begin an immediate course of chemotherapy.
And, despite the morale-sapping challenge, Ikeme has vowed to bounce back, while thanking all for their love and kindness.
''Thank you all for your kindness and Love. The start of a new chapter and ready to give it my all! Thank you,’’ he tweeted.
