Ronnie Wood faced a cancer battle for the second time after he was diagnosed with small cell cancer during lockdown.

It comes four years after he beat lung cancer in 2017, undergoing a five-hour operation to remove a tumour from his left lung.

The Rolling Stones star has been given the all-clear since his treatment and is ‘staying positive’.

Ronnie, who has four-year-old twins Gracie Jane and Alice Rose with wife Sally, 42, is giving everything over to a ‘higher power’ and added ‘what will be will be’.

The 73-year-old told The Sun: ‘I had small cell more recently that I fought in the last lockdown. Throughout my recovery, you have to let it go. What will be will be, it’s nothing to do with me.

‘All I can do is stay positive in my attitude, be strong and fight it, and the rest is up to my higher power.’

The musician previously said his ‘life was hanging by a thread’ in 2017 ‘after 50 years of chain-smoking.’

He added: ‘The doctors were able to remove the tumour from my left lung, thank God the cancer had not spread.

‘Now my lungs are working like a young man who never smoked. I finally quit smoking four years ago. The Seventies were by far my wildest time.’

In 2019 he told Metro.co.uk about how he made sure to look after his health while on the road with The Rolling Stones, keeping his rider as nutritious as possible.

‘As long as I’ve got my espresso coffee machine and my nuts and pumpkin seeds I’m fine,’ Ronnie laughed.

On keeping an eye on his health he added: ‘It’s gotta be done. I have my health check up since I was lucky enough to have the cancer scare and beat it. Somebody up there likes me!’
