Former Northants and England all-rounder David Capel has had successful surgery on a brain tumour.

The 55-year-old collapsed at a club event in August, but is now at home recovering from the operation.

Capel first joined Northants in 1979, and his 33-year association with the club ended when he was replaced as head coach in 2012.

He made 15 Test and 23 one-day international appearances for England between 1987 and 1990.

“Everyone connected to the club wishes David a full and speedy recovery,” said a club statement.
