Real Madrid's Portuguese star striker Cristiano Ronaldo rejoined the squad for Spanish league action this weekend after recovering from an ankle strain, his club said on Thursday.

"Cristiano Ronaldo rejoined the squad in this morning's training session in preparation for Saturday's match against Sporting Gijon," Real Madrid said in a statement on their website.

He had skipped training earlier this week after suffering a left ankle sprain during last weekend's 4-1 league win over Atletico Madrid.

Ronaldo is currently the joint top scorer in the Spanish league this season, level with Lionel Messi of Barcelona on 16 goals.

Real Madrid, who lead the Spanish league by three points ahead of European champions Barcelona, travel to third-from-bottom Sporting Gijon on Saturday.
