Johnny Williams took to Instagram to reveal he has been treated for testicular cancer

England youth international Williams, 22, took to Instagram to share the news to his fans – and vowed to get “back on that pitch asap”.

In an emotional post, he wrote: “I’ve recently faced a slight bump in the road after being diagnosed with testicular cancer.

“This came as a huge surprise and out of no where but these things always do and there’s no preparing for it.

“Today I have finished my last batch of chemotherapy and the road is about to get easier from here.

“My girlfriend Hannah, family, friends, team mates, coaches have been extremely supportive in these circumstances and I can’t thank any of them enough.

“Lads, please make sure you don’t make the same mistake I did.

“Regularly check your balls and if you find anything out of the ordinary, swelling or firmness be sure to get checked out by your GP straight away.

“Here’s to getting back fit and healthy and back on that pitch asap!”

The Falcons man started his career at London Irish and featured in the 2016 Under-20 World Cup for England before moving to the north-east in May 2018.

He was unable to do enough to help Newcastle avoid relegation last season – they get their Championship campaign underway on Saturday at London Scottish.

Williams played at the end of the 2018/19 campaign and was in the senior England side that beat the Barbarians at Twickenham in June.
