Hull City defender Angus MacDonald is continuing his recovery from bowel cancer after being diagnosed with the disease in September, and on Thursday afternoon opened up about his journey on the Hawksbee and Jacob show on TalkSport.
MacDonald had only just returned to training after recovering from deep vein thrombosis, before he was diagnosed with the early stages of Bowel Cancer in September.
A club statement back in September, said: “Angus has shown great strength of character in the way he has reacted to this news, the whole Tigers family join together in showing Angus continued love and will support him in his recovery.”
MacDonald, 26, began his treatment in October and on Wednesday popped in to TalkSport to discuss his recovery and the journey he has been on so far.
Following his appearance on the show, MacDonald took to Twitter to thank the show for having him on air to discuss his story.

MacDonald, who made 23 league appearances for the Tigers during the 2017-2018, only managed one last term due to his deep vein thrombosis.
As well as Tigers fans, MacDonald received well wishes from fans of his former clubs, here are some of the best replies the defender received…
Wishing you all the best Angus, your fight being in the public eye will give others fighting the same battles confidence and comfort that they're not on their own. And that is priceless.
