Korda’s illness was discovered when she developed swelling in her arm after a routine workout, which led to the diagnosis.

Since then she has been resting at home, with no timescale for when she aims to be back out on the course.

“I am currently at home getting treatment to eliminated further risks,” the 23-year-old said at the time.

“I will communicate my status as and when there is more information.
