• ‘I can put up with a lot but in hospital I was overwhelmed’
Dave Brailsford has revealed he has undergone surgery for prostate cancer. The 55-year-old Team Ineos principal, who led Britain’s domination of cycling at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, had surgery last month after the diagnosis in July.
He told the Times: “There’s bound to be fear. It’s the great unknown. I think I’m resilient, tough. I can put up with a lot but in hospital one day I was overwhelmed, to be honest.”
