Sky Sports presenter Jacquie Beltrao has bravely opened up about her health battle after being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. The former Olympic gymnast previously fought breast cancer in 2013 and later underwent a mastectomy.
The 55-year-old has since opened up about her devastating diagnosis in June, after her cancer returned.
Following a biopsy on a tiny lump below her collarbone, Jacquie discovered that the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes and that it was incurable.
The former Olympics gymnast has now revealed some "game changing" news that she has been given.
The small-screen star was originally due to have 16 rounds of chemotherapy; but a scan after the eighth showed that the tumour had shrunk by more than 50 per cent.

It was later decided she should stop chemotherapy after the 12th round of treatment.
Jacquie has since spoken candidly about her health diagnosis and admitted "life had stopped" until her doctor gave her some good news.
"Mr Sharma described the main tumour in my chest as having gone 'from the size of a big man’s big toe, to the size of the nail on your little finger,'" she explained.
"We’d been so tense and worried about the scan, life had pretty much stopped, so this news was a game changer."
