FC Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas has taken the next step in his recovery from a heart attack in May, returning to training for the first time in six months.
The 38-year-old has been keeping his fans up-to-date throughout his recovery and shared this photo of himself on a treadmill a few weeks ago. Casillas was rushed to a local hospital after he suffered a heart attack during a training session. Local outlet Maisfutebol reported he underwent a cardiac catheterisation, and Porto soon released a statement, reassuring fans he was out of danger.
He's been slowly working his way back since, he trained individually for the first time on Monday. Casillas worked for less than half an hour and is not yet close to returning to match action, but he has been included in Porto's official squad for the 2019-20 Primeira Liga season.
He's been working as a liaison between the Porto squad, coaches and boardroom on a provisional basis.
