Three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond is being handled for leukaemia.

The 2-time world champion – who received the Tour de France in 1986, 1989 and 1990 – stated “just a few weeks of fatigue” prompted him to go for a check-up.

He’s the one American to say the Tour de France after Lance Armstrong and Floyd Landis had been stripped of their wins over banned substances.

“I’ve been identified with power myelogenous leukaemia,” the 60-year-old stated in an announcement on his web site.

“Fortuitously, it’s a sort of most cancers that’s treatable, and it’s a sort of leukaemia that’s not life-threatening or debilitating.

“Following a collection of checks and a bone marrow biopsy, which was accomplished final week, I acquired my formal prognosis final Friday.

“No-one ever needs to listen to the phrase most cancers however, admittedly, there’s nice aid, now, to know why I used to be feeling poorly.”
