Actress and celebrity Sylvie van der Vaart, 31, has been successfully treated for breast cancer, her lawyer Robert Geerlings said on Tuesday.
The disease was caught at an early stage and the operation to remove it was successful, Geerlings said.
Sylvie, who is married to Real Madrid player Rafael van der Vaart will undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy in the summer.
Van der Vaart was voted Holland’s sexiest woman in 2003.
