Former Celtic favourite Moussa Dembele has returned to Atletico Madrid training, just days after feinting during a session.
The French forward collapsed during a stretching exercise on Tuesday, in pretty distressing footage.
Many would have feared the worst after watching the incident unfold, but now it seems like we have some more positive news to report.

Translated, their message read: Moussa Dembele has returned to training for the first time after fainting on Tuesday.
“He has exercised on the grass individually and controlled by the club’s doctors.”
The image of Dembele back in training is great to see, just days after such a horror incident.
Dembele could add more silverware with Atletico this season
Atletico are currently four points clear at the top of La Liga but have seen their lead reduced after faltering at the start of 2021.
Dembele is yet to start a match for Diego Simeone’s side – and faces stiff competition from the likes of Luis Suarez and Joao Felix for a starting berth.
Time will tell whether the prolific frontman can work his way into Atleti’s team for their final 10 matches of the season.
Celtic fans will be a little split on who to support in the Spanish title race between now and the end of the season.
Dembele succeeding at Atleti would be pretty special, but it would also be nice to see Henrik Larsson help Barcelona to the title.
Here’s hoping Real Madrid don’t move for Odsonne Edouard in the summer.
