FELIXSTOWE-based former world number three speedway rider Olle Nygren is in Papworth Hospital, Cambridgeshire waiting to have a heart by-pass operation.

The 78-year-old, who was rushed to Ipswich Hospital last week, is still planning to run speedway training schools in Sweden this year.

Two years ago Nygren completed a 11,000 mile seven-week motorcycle trek across Asia and Europe.
