Michael Douglas is feeling “much stronger” as he makes good progress in his battle against cancer, according to his actor father Kirk Douglas.
The Oscar-winner underwent treatment for throat cancer last month and has been photographed in recent weeks looking pale and gaunt.

But Douglas sent out a message of hope when he was pictured looking healthy and happy in a family shot at Disney World on Wednesday.

And now his dad Kirk has offered further encouragement the Wall Street star is on the mend – insisting his son has returned to his “feisty” self.

He says, “Michael is very good, I spoke to him yesterday. He’s much stronger now – he’s feisty.”
