'Lucky' Petrov reflects on long year

Aston Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov says he is lucky to be alive as he continues his fight against leukaemia.

The Bulgarian was diagnosed in March 2012 but is now in remission after finishing his first year of treatment.

Petrov says he is glad to be able to get back to doing normal things like taking his children to school.
