Apple boss takes medical leave

18th January 2011

Apple boss Steve Jobs has announced that he is to take medical leave from the company to focus on his health.

Writing to his workforce via email, Mr Jobs – who was absent from Apple for six months up to mid-2009 to have a liver transplant – said he planned to be back at work as soon as he can. The transplant was part treatment he has undergone for pancreatic cancer. He was first diagnosed as suffering from the cancer in 2004 and underwent surgery later that year to remove a tumour from his pancreas.
