TERESOPOLIS, Brazil (AP) — Neymar was back in training on Tuesday to give Brazil a big boost ahead of the World Cup.

Neymar has been sidelined since February after having surgery on his right foot but spent an hour training on the main pitch at Brazil's Granja Comary training ground in Teresopolis, outside Rio de Janeiro.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker was joined by Manchester City duo Gabriel Jesus and Danilo as he took part in drills, using his recovering foot to dribble cones and shoot from long and close range.

Neymar was cleared to take part in training after undergoing a medical exams earlier Tuesday.
