Sir Rod Stewart has beaten prostate cancer after a secret three-year battle.
The 74-year-old music legend was diagnosed with the potentially-deadly disease in February 2016 after a routine check-up, but has beaten prostate cancer because he "caught it early".
Speaking at a Prostate Project fundraising event with his with former Faces bandmates Kenney Jones and Ronnie Wood in Surrey, south east England, he is quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: "Two years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer.
"No one knows this, but I thought this was about time I told everybody. I'm in the clear, now, simply because I caught it early. I have so many tests.
"If you're positive, and you work through it and you keep a smile on your face.
"I've worked for two years and I've just been happy, and the good Lord looked after me."
The 'Maggie May' hitmaker, who has been in remission since July, encouraged other men to get checked out for the disease.
Rod - who has eight kids - said: "Guys, you've got to really go to the doctor.
"Finger up the bum, no harm done."
Ronnie, 72 - who has suffered from lung cancer - told him: "Somebody up there likes us, Rod."
