The CIA on Thursday tweeted in support of "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek, who announced on Wednesday that he has stage IV pancreatic cancer

"Q: This game show host visited CIA HQs & won the hearts of CIA's workforce," the CIA tweeted. "A: Who is Alex Trebek?"

"On behalf of the entire CIA family, our thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. This is not final @Jeopardy! You can beat this, #AlexTrebek!" the intelligence agency added.

Trebek spoke about his diagnosis on Wednesday in a video that was widely shared.

“Just like 50,000 other people in the United States each year, this week I was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer,” Trebek said. “Now normally the prognosis for this is not very encouraging, but I’m going to fight this.”

The CIA has increasingly been tweeting about popular culture. Last month, the agency tweeted about the movie "Black Panther" and "Wakandan technology" during the Oscars.
