Former Norwich City assistant manager Craig Shakespeare has revealed he has been diagnosed with cancer and is currently receiving treatment.

The 59-year-old was second in command to Dean Smith at Carrow Road from November, 2021 to December, 2022.

In a social media post, Leicester City, where Shakespeare was manager in 2017, said: "Craig is very grateful for the kind well wishes he has been receiving and for the privacy that he and his family have been shown during this challenging time."

Leicester City chief executive Susan Whelan said: “Everyone at the club sends their strength and support to Craig, his wife Karen and their children Elle and Jed. They will all be in our thoughts and prayers as Craig progresses with his treatment, surrounded by the love befitting his place in the hearts of the Leicester City family and the wider game.”
