The former Dutch star has been diagnosed with lymphoma.

I have sad news, I have been diagnosed with lymphoma,van de Goor said on Friday.

Lately I have undergone all types of examinations. As soon as they discover the type of lymphoma, a definitely clearer treatment plan will be drawn, which will begin soon. This means that I’m going to fully focus first on the treatment and cure of this disease.

The 45-year-old has been suffering from diabetes and the initiative of his foundation is to help people with diabetes to get a better life through sports. Van de Goor played less than 295 international matches with the Netherlands men’s national team. He played at Atlanta 1996 and won gold, then continued for another Olympic cycle at Sydney 2000, where his team finished fifth.
