Beltrao - "I feel so lucky to be returning to work at Wimbledon, my favourite sports event of the year"

Following her treatment for breast cancer, Sky News' Dublin-born presenter Jacquie Beltrao has returned to work at the broadcaster and says she feels "stronger ever day".

Mother-of-three Beltrao, who grew up in Coventry, announced she had cancer online on New Year's Eve after undergoing a mammogram on Christmas Eve.

The former Olympic gymnast will be seen as part of Sky News' Wimbledon coverage and said of her return to work: "I feel so lucky to be returning to work at Wimbledon, my favourite sports event of the year.

"I feel stronger every day post chemo and I'm sure the adrenaline of being back live on Sky will carry me through a busy but exciting fortnight."

"When I'm back at work I'll know that I'm finally out the other side of this ordeal," she added.
