Neymar back in training with Brazil ahead of World Cup

Neymar appeared in training on Tuesday to give Brazil a big boost ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker has been kept out of play since February after having surgery on his right foot but spent an hour training on the main pitch at Brazil's Granja Comary training ground in Teresopolis, outside Rio de Janeiro.

Neymar was joined by Manchester City duo Gabriel Jesus and Danilo as he took part in drills, using his recovering foot to dribble cones and shoot from long and close range.

Neymar was cleared to take part in training after going through medical exams earlier Tuesday.
