Former Wolves keeper Carl Ikeme was all smiles as he stepped back onto the Molineux pitch yesterday for the team's clash against Manchester City.

The star player brought with him his two young children, and waved and smiled for fans before the match kicked off on Saturday.

He tweeted: "Great day being back at Wolves seeing everyone! Big love always."

Ikeme was diagnosed with acute leukaemia a year ago, and had to take a step back from his sporting career. After prolonged treatment he recently revealed he was in remission.

Last month he announced he was retiring from professional football, following medical advice.
