Neymar was back training with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on Wednesday as he stepped up his rehabilitation from a foot injury.

The Brazilian forward has not featured for the Ligue 1 champions since damaging a metatarsal in a Coupe de France win over Strasbourg on January 23.

PSG confirmed on Tuesday the world's most expensive footballer would resume light training work with them the following day and the club uploaded a video of him going through some drills at their facility.

"Neymar Jr's injury continues to respond very positively," said a statement on PSG's website.

"While the rest of the squad had a light morning session ahead of tonight's Coupe de France semi-final [against Nantes], Neymar worked through a number of ball drills with a club physio.

"A medical examination and X-ray will be done in two weeks to determine an eventual date when we can expect to see Neymar back on the pitch."
