Wolverhampton Wanderers of England goalkeeper, Carl Onuoha Ikeme has made his first public appearance since being diagnosed with leukaemia last year.
Ikeme’s return to public glare came on Tuesday at a hospital in Solihull, England, where he went on an invitation to open a chemotherapy unit that will help further in the battle against cancer.
Ikeme, 32, who, in June revealed he is in remission, was all smiles as he joined Black Sabbath rock legend, Tony Iommi, to open the cancer care centre, but said he was not ready to speak publicly about his illness.
Ikeme, however, hinted that he was there as a form of thank-you to his friend and former consultant, Manos Nikolousis, who first diagnosed him with leukaemia last year.
The Super Eagles number one keeper received treatment at sister hospital, Heartlands, before being cared for at a clinic in Manchester.
