Correction to: British Journal of Cancer https://doi.org/10.1038/s41416-021-01533-4, published online 1 September 2021
The original version of this article unfortunately contained a mistake in the legend of Fig. 1. Due to a typesetting error the legend incorrectly mentions “blue bars” although the figure appears in greyscale. We apologize for the error. The correct legend should read: “Fig. 1. Estimated incidence (numbers of cases, dark grey bars) of and mortality (numbers of deaths, light grey bars) from common paediatric cancers according to age group. A: 0–4, B: 5–9, C: 10–14, D: 15–19 years. Combined frequencies for males and females in 2020. Source: GLOBOCAN 2020 . N.B.: GLOBOCAN omits data on sarcomas.” The original article has been corrected.
