Real Madrid Legend Iker Casillas Returns To Porto Training Six Months After Suffering Heart Attack

 Casillas has completed an amazing recovery from his heart attack back in May

Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas has completed an amazing return to Porto training just six months after suffering a heart attack.

Reports circulated that the 38-year-old would have to retire  after being hospitalised for five days back in May.

But the fully recovered Spaniard could return to first-team action.

He tweeted a picture of used football boots, captioned: “Six months and three days you have been out of service.”

And AS  report that Casillas  trained alone for between 20 and 25 minutes on Monday.

Porto signed Argentine international Agustin Marchesin from Club America in the summer to be their new first-choice goalkeeper.

But Casillas will be hoping to displace his new team-mate after his incredible recovery.

The 2010 World Cup winner is one of the most decorated goalkeepers to ever play the game.

As well as that World Cup triumph, he has also won two European Championships with his country, as well as five La Liga titles, three Champions Leagues, two Copa del Reys and one Portuguese title.

He is second on the all-time list of Real Madrid  appearance makers.

He also won 167 Spain caps before calling time on his international career in 2016.

Porto currently sit second in the Primeira Liga, two points behind leaders Benfica.
