Following publication of the original article , the authors identified the following typesetting errors:
A small number of references were not inserted in-text correctly. As a result, some in-text citations are not correct for specific statements in our results section on pages 4-5. The corrected version should read as follows:
“There were 58 (54%) studies conducted among adults diagnosed with solid tumours [24, 34-90], 25 (23%) studies in haematological cancers [25, 91-114] and 24 (22%) studies including patients with mixed cancer diagnoses [26, 115-137]. For the studies in solid tumours, exercise interventions were delivered during cancer treatment in 20 (34%) studies [34-53], during and after treatment in 12 (21%) studies [24, 54-64], and entirely after treatment in 26 (45%) studies [65-90]. The most common solid tumour groups investigated were cancers of the colon or rectum (n = 15, 26%), lung (n = 12, 21%), and head and neck (n = 10, 17%). For studies in haematological cancers, 13 (52%) delivered exercise interventions during treatment [91-103], specifically stem-cell transplant or chemotherapy, four (16%) during and after treatment [25, 104-106], and eight (32%) after treatment [107-114]. In studies that enrolled adults with mixed cancer diagnoses, seven (29%) of these studies delivered interventions during cancer treatment [26, 115-120], six (25%) during and after treatment [121-126], and 11 (46%) after treatment [127-137].”
This in-text error affects downstream citation numbering, including citations in Table 2. It also influences the reference list order.
One of the studies in Table 2 appears in the wrong location. The study by Grote et al. should appear under the section “Solid tumours, during treatment.”
These corrections were typesetting errors and do not influence the results of this article. The publishers apologise for this error. The original article  has been updated.
