Barcelona defender Eric Abidal was present at his club's training session on Monday, without actually taking part, for the first time since undergoing an operation to remove a liver tumour.

The France international "put on his tracksuit to stroll around the pitch", the Spanish league leaders said in a statement.

Abidal left hospital after his surgery on March 24 and was told he could begin physical exercise at end-April.

The 31-year-old French international underwent a three-hour operation on March 17 at a Barcelona hospital to remove the tumour.
