Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero has returned to training 11 days after he suffered a rib injury in a car crash in Amsterdam.
The 29-year-old striker had been expected to be out for several weeks, but resumed light training on Tuesday.
City say the Argentina international will “build up his fitness in the coming days as he edges towards a first team return”.
Aguero is one goal shy of Eric Brook’s all-time City record of 177 goals.
City, who are top of the Premier League on goal difference from Manchester United, play Stoke on Saturday.
The incident occurred when Aguero’s taxi crashed into a pillar on its way to the airport.
The striker had been in Amsterdam to see Colombian pop star Maluma perform.
Aguero has been in lethal form for Man City this season, scoring six goals in six Premier League appearances to help them to the top of the table.
