Murray Walker, a true legendary figure in F1, has sadly been diagnosed with cancer.

89-year-old Walker, with over 30-years of F1 commentary behind him, has a form of lymphatic system cancer that was diagnosed following tests after a fall that saw him break his pelvis recently.

Walker is in good spirits and catching this early has given him every chance of beating it, he said: ‘They’ve caught it incredibly early. It’s treatable, the doctors say my condition is mild and I’m very hopeful.’

Chemotherapy will take place over the coming months in the hope of curing Walker of the decease, with him quite clearly being offered the full support of everyone within the F1 world and beyond!
