Jose Enrique has revealed he has got the all clear following treatment for a brain tumour in a video message on his Instagram page.
The former Newcastle and Liverpool defender was diagnosed with chordoma in May 2018.
Chordoma is a rare type of tumour that usually occurs in the bones of the skull base and spine, but his was found behind the eye.
The 32-year-old underwent a nine-hour operation last June and in January posted images of his treatment on Instagram.
On Monday, Enrique posted a video to his Instagram account revealing the great news that his MRI scan showed he was all clear.
