Former England captain and well-known Television commentator Tony Greig has been diagnosed with lung cancer. "I have had a few scrapes in my life and this is another one," Greig was quoted as saying by the Sunday Telegraph. "Vivian [His wife] and I are going to put the boxing gloves on and fight this like we've never fought anything before," he added.
Greig, 66, will undergo a biopsy later this week to ascertain what level the disease has reached and to determine the further course of action.
He was also diagnosed with bronchitis in May this year. Following the World Twenty20, where Greig had gone as a TV commentator, he underwent diagnostic tests which revealed that he had a lesion on his right lung. Further testing confirmed that the lesion was cancerous.
