Sir Bobby was initially taken ill during Ipswich Town's first home game of the season against Crystal Palace, on August 5 and has already battled cancer three times in the past.
In May, he had a golf-ball sized tumour removed from a lung, while in 1995 he underwent surgery after cancer was discovered behind his eye. Three years before that he survived bowel cancer.
