NBC Sports analyst Pierre McGuire underwent surgery to remove his prostate last week after being diagnosed with prostate cancer. The longtime broadcaster announced the news on TSN 690 in Montreal on Wednesday and said he feels “fantastic” after a successful procedure.

“I had no signs at all that I was ill,” McGuire said. ”My work habits hadn’t changed, my workout habits hadn’t changed. My eating habits hadn’t changed. I hadn’t lost weight and hadn’t gained weight.”

He said that he expects to be back at work for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang starting in February.
