13-time TT winner over for FoM

TT fan-favourite Bruce Anstey has been spotted on the Island by bike enthusiasts.

The 13-time winner was diagnosed with cancer for the second time earlier this year, which has ruled him out of racing for the 2018 season.

Manx Radio understands the 49-year-old New Zealander will be on the Isle of Man until Tuesday (28 August) to attend the Festival of Motorcycling.

Anstey won his first TT back in 2002 and has gone on to become one of the most popular competitors in the modern era.
