Former England captain Bryan Robson says he is recovering well after an operation to remove a tumour from his throat.

The 54-year-old former Manchester United midfielder, who is current boss of the Thailand national team, said the cancer was discovered a few weeks ago after he had experienced a sore throat and swollen glands.

But after an operation to remove the mass, and with a course of radiotherapy to come, Robson is confident of making a full recovery.

“I thought I had a sore throat about three to four weeks ago, and all of a sudden, glands were starting to swell,” Robson told Omnisport.

“When I went to the hospital just to get a check up they put a torch down the throat and said: ‘Look Mr Robson I think that’s a tumour you’ve got there and not the swollen glands’, so it came as a little bit of a shock because you don’t expect that.”

“The hospitals over there are terrific in Thailand.”

“This was on the Monday and by the Thursday they took the tumour out. That was successful, the operation, they did tests and everything.”

“What it’s boiled down to now is that it’s isolated to the throat, that’s a good thing, and I need five weeks of radiotherapy so that’s good news after the initial bad news.”
