"My biopsies came back negative!!! Thank you ALL for the love. I feel it!", he posted.

The Wolverine star this week revealed he had undergone tests after a recent medical check-up.
Jackman had his first skin cancer removed in 2013, and has since had at least six procedures.

The actor repeated his sun-safety message, writing:"Please remember to wear sunscreen with a high level of SPF, no matter the season".

Jackman took the tests after his doctor noticed "little things which could be, or could not be basal cell [carcinomas]".

Basal cell carcinoma is a non-melanoma - which means it is much less likely to spread - and is caused by overexposure to the sun or sunbeds. Treatment for non-melanoma skin cancers are successful in 90% of cases, according to the NHS.

Australia is the skin cancer capital of the world, with more than 11,500 people diagnosed with a melanoma and an estimated 434,000 treated for other skin cancers each year.
