IPSWICH Town legend Sir Bobby Robson is battling cancer for the fifth time.
The 74-year-old former England manager, who made his name as a manager at Ipswich Town - winning the FA Cup in 1978 and the UEFA Cup in 1981 - has battled the disease on and off for the last 15 years.
He started a six-week course of chemotherapy treatment last week after doctors discovered small cancerous nodules in his lungs.
Sir Bobby has vowed to carry on with his life as normal and will attend his annual charity golf day in Portugal next week before celebrating his 52nd wedding anniversary next month with wife Elsie.
