Barcelona: Star striker Lione Messi returned to Spanish football champions FC Barcelona's training from a kidney treatment on Thursday.
Messi underwent a procedure to treat kidney stones two days ago but turned up to train and was the highlight of Thursday's training session, which involved all the available players, reports Efe.
Barcelona drew Wednesday's second leg match of the Copa del Ray semi-final against Valencia 1-1 but advanced with a 8-1 aggregate score. They won the first leg 7-0.
This is the first Barcelona training session in readiness for the La Liga match against Celta Vigo next Sunday.
Coach Luis Enrique's team will rest on Friday and return to training on Saturday.
