THE brain cancer that former US President Jimmy Carter announced he had back in August appears to have gone.

Mr Carter, 91, made the announcement during a Sunday school class in Plains, Georgia, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) newspaper said.  Recent MRI scan shows no signs of the original cancer spots on the brain of the former American president.

Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002, Mr Carter was US president from 1977 to 1981.

In November, the former president reported that he was responding well to treatment and there were no signs of further cancer growth.

He won the Nobel Peace Prize for his ongoing commitment to finding peaceful solutions to international conflicts, as well as for his human rights work.
