Scottish comedian Billy Connolly has been given the all-clear from prostate cancer, and is "okay".
He broke the news during an interview with Sky Sports News while in Glasgow for a football match between Celtic and Barcelona.
He said: "My health, I got the clearance on Wednesday for my cancer so I am okay."
Last month, the 70-year-old's spokeswoman said Connolly had undergone minor surgery for early-stage prostate cancer. He has also been diagnosed with the "initial symptoms" Parkinson's disease.
Connolly plans to continue to work in television and on stage and is heading on an extensive theatrical tour of New Zealand in February.
He is married to New Zealand-born actress and psychologist Pamela Stephenson, whose biography of her husband, called Billy, was a huge bestseller.
