Olivia Newton-John feels "confident" that she will beat breast cancer for the second time.

The Grease star was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 and she underwent treatment and a mastectomy to fight the disease, but 25 years later, in May (17), her spokesperson revealed that she had been diagnosed with it again and that the cancer had "metastasised to the sacrum".

The 68-year-old has now spoken out following her announcement to assure fans she is feeling well and she is confident her treatments will be a success.

"I am really grateful for and touched by the worldwide outpouring of love and concern. Thank you," she told People magazine in a statement. "I am feeling good and enjoying total support from my family and friends, along with a team of wellness and medical practitioners both here in the US and at my Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia.

"I'm totally confident that my new journey will have a positive success story to inspire others! Love and light, Olivia."

In the announcement, her spokesperson explained that the back pain Olivia had been suffering turned out to be breast cancer, which she is fighting with natural therapies as well as a short course of photon radiation therapy.

Her daughter Chloe Lattanzi took to Instagram last week (ends04Jun17) and told fans her mother is "so powerful she will beat this in no time." She has since decided to quit the site after receiving insensitive comments about her mum's health crisis.

Olivia cancelled her North American tour following her diagnosis.
