The wife of goalkeeper Iker Casillas, who suffered a heart attack while training with Porto just three weeks ago, has revealed she is fighting ovarian cancer.
Sara Carbonero announced the shocking news in an emotional social media post.
The 35-year-old TV sports journalist wrote: “When we hadn’t yet recovered from one shock, life has surprised us again.
“This time it’s me, that six-letter word I still struggle to write.
“A few days ago during a check-up, doctors described a malignant ovarian tumour and I have been operated on.”
