Yograj Singh, former Indian cricketer and father of Yuvraj Singh has been diagnosed with throat cancer. His son, Yuvraj recovered from a germ cell cancer not so long ago. Yograj is receiving treatment in New York. Yograj is believed to have been suffering from breathlessness and coughing. It resulted in his family going for the surgery option. The surgery though, has been successful and Yuvraj is said to be in touch with his father.

“He would often complain about throat pain and cough. But he never let us know what was going on. He would take medicines and be fine for a while. But when the problem got worse, he had to tell us,” Yograj’s wife Satveer Kaur was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.

“Thanks to the Almighty, the tumour was removed about 20 days back and he is recovering now. He has been advised not to talk till he has recovered completely,” said Satveer.

Despite suffering from cancer, Yograj is said to be in constant touch with his student, and Kings XI Punjab opener, Manan Vohra. Vohra said, “It was wonderful to get his wishes even when he is unwell. He is my Guru, I wish he is back to Chandigarh fully fit soon, so that I could share with him my IPL experience.

Yograj’s wife, Satveer Kaur concluded by saying, “He will be back as soon as the observation period is over. He did not want me to accompany him as our children had to be looked after. We are hoping for his quick recovery.”
