Al gave his best blue steel look

Al shared with fans in November 2020 that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

The 66-year-old took some time off work to undergo surgery and delighted viewers following the operation with the good news that the doctors were reassured that they had managed to remove the cancer.

In January 2021 he thrilled his fans post-surgery when he told his co-stars, Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb: "I just went to the doctor yesterday and I got some good news.

"The initial results look hopeful."

Al hammed it up for the cameras

Speaking of the moment he told his family he said: "[My wife] was upset, obviously. We waited till the weekend to tell our kids. "They were very upset, obviously. I said, 'It’s okay. Doctor said, yes, it’s aggressive. I’m not going to sugarcoat this, but he said we caught it early.'

"My son, Nick, is very sweet. He’s a sweet boy, and he’s got some learning issues. He was really upset and was kind of reacting."

The 66-year-old was speaking to The Patient Story, which "offers human answers to cancer questions."
