I have cancer, says Hutchins

BRITISH tennis player Ross Hutchins has revealed he is battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a form of cancer that affects the immune system.

The 27-year-old, ranked world No28 in doubles, has represented his country in Davis Cup and at last year’s Olympic Games.

Hutchins wrote on Twitter: “I will be away from tennis for a while as I was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.”
