Iker Casillas Returns To Porto Training Sixth Months After Heart Attack

Iker Casillas Returns To Porto Training Sixth Months After Heart Attack

Iker Casillas has made a return to training for FC Porto just six months after a heart attack.

The Real Madrid legend collapsed while training with the Portuguese side back in May.

The 38-year-old suffered an acute myocardial infarction which is the medical term for a heart attack and was released after five days.

And now the Spaniard has made a return to training and marked his return with a tweet to let fans know.

The tweet translates to: "6 months and three days you have been in the locker".

It's great news to see the living legend return after rumours that he was set to announce his retirement following the heart scare.

Following a series of tests back in May, he tweeted:

"I do not know what the future will be, but the most important thing was to be here and be able to talk quietly."

It would have been a tragic end to a career that's seen him win it all, including multiple Champions League titles in Madrid as well as two European Championships and a World Cup with Spain.

But Spanish outlet AS has reported that the former Spain captain trained alone for around 25 minutes on Monday afternoon.

He's still not ready to train with his teammates yet but it is a huge step to take after believing he would never play again.

He had hinted to fans a few weeks ago that he was on the road to recovery after posting a photo of him on a treadmill.

Casillas has also offered his services to last season's Primeira Liga runners-up in the role of a liaison officer between players and coaches.

He was also a late addition to Porto's squad for the 2019-2020 season so it seems that the shot-stopper could make a return at some point this season.

It would be a big boost to the 'Azuis e brancos' who are two points behind rivals Benfica in this season's Primeira Liga.

We think that every football fan in the world would welcome a return between the sticks from one of the greatest keepers to ever live.
