FORMER Ipswich Town favourite Jason Cundy has spoken of his determination to beat cancer for a second time after tests showed signs of the disease returning.

The 32-year-old, who beat testicular cancer nearly five years ago, revealed yesterday latest scans had shown the emergence of pre-cancerous cells.

He will now undergo radiotherapy, but is adamant he can fight off the disease yet again.

Cundy said: "I have to believe I will beat it again. There's no other way I can approach it. I've got so much support around me, I've got two beautiful sons and a beautiful wife and I can't think any different."
