Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele has made a long-awaited return to full training after a three-month long absence with a hamstring injury.
The Frenchman has been out of the picture at the Nou Camp pretty much since he pitched up after his big money move from Borussia Dortmund, after sustaining a tear of his full debut for the Blaugrana.
The 20-year-old had to undergo surgery such was the extent of the damage, and has had to watch all of the team's successes so far this season from the sidelines.
As documented by the club's official Instagram, Dembele recently participated in 'rondo' warm up exercises before doing solo work, as his return nears.

Dembele was signed for a whopping £135m afetr lighting up the Bundesliga for Dortmund in his one and only season last term, and is the direct replacement for Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain for a world record £198 in the transfer that stunned the world.
