Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has been seen for the first time since undergoing surgery on his injured right foot.
The winger was pictured on crutches boarding a private plane at Pampulha Airport in Belo Horizonte in his homeland of Brazil.
Neymar suffered the injury during PSG’s 3-0 victory over Marseille in Ligue 1 on February 25.
Having had successful surgery on his fifth metatarsal in his right foot, Neymar will be assessed by PSG in six weeks to determine when he will return to training.
There have been suggestions that the 26-year-old could be out for three months and he will be eager to be fully fit to represent Brazil at this summer’s World Cup, which gets underway on June 14.
Neymar became the most expensive player in the world when he joined PSG from Barcelona last summer for a fee of £198million.
This season Neymar has scored 29 goals in 30 appearances for PSG across all competitions, while he has provided 15 assists.
PSG are 14 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 and they are through to the final of the Coupe de la Ligue as well as the semi-finals of the Coupe de France.
However, they are 3-1 down going into the second leg of their Champions League, last-16 tie at home to Real Madrid on Tuesday.
