Berger wrote in a statement on social media: ‘I wanted to update fans directly that unfortunately, after four years of living cancer-free there has been a recurrence detected in my thyroid.

‘I’ve said before that as a sportsperson you have to fight every day to be the best you can be and that’s something I will continue to do and I hope by sharing my journey, I can help others that find themselves in a similar situation.

‘I am working closely with my club doctor and specialist in London and my treatment will start this week.
