With not a ball kicked in anger since June, it's safe to say that Diego Costa is in need of a few strenuous training sessions and matches to get back to his best.

The returning Atletico Madrid hero, who finally got his wish to leave Chelsea and head back to his former club, has remained in Spain's capital after he was obviously left out of his adopted homeland's senior squad for the October international break.

What better time to whip him up into shape then and, judging by the below footage, it seems that strict Atletico fitness coach Oscar Ortega (known as 'Profe' or professor) is determined to make Costa feel like he wants to die.

Los Colcheneros' new recruit is certainly putting in the hards yards there, but Ortega won't be letting him rest on his laurels. After all, this is a professional footballer who spent two months partying in South America after his self-imposed Chelsea exile.

From trampoline running to plenty of minutes clocked up on the stationary bike, Costa is being put through his paces at a considerable rate. Expect him to be fit and raring to go sharpish based on that video!
