Hodgkin's Lymphoma remission news delights Hutchins

The Great Britain Davis Cup player was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in December and underwent six months of chemotherapy at the Royal Marsden Hospital.

Hutchins' last session was a month ago and he revealed the good news on Twitter yesterday afternoon.

The 28-year-old wrote: "Was a big day today, met my Oncologist and I am now in remission :) So grateful to fantastic Professor Cunningham and his team @royalmarsden"

Hutchins' close friend Andy Murray hinted at the good news to come with a tweet earlier that read: "Just got some of the best news I've heard in a long long time... Great start to the day! Back training properly today on hard courts"

Murray donated his prize money of more than £70,000 to the Rally Against Cancer cause after winning the Queen's title for a third time.
