Barcelona were back training in groups on Monday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper which meant the return of the rondo.

After training individually for a week the players have now been allowed to train in groups of up to 10 and were snapped in action.

Striker Luis Suarez was pictured as he closes in on a return to full fitness after undergoing surgery on a knee injury in January.

Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets were also seen with Suarez, along with Barca B’s Ronald Araujo and Riqui Puig.

Here’s some footage of the session:

La Liga president Javier Tebas has offered a fresh update on when the competition might resume after saying the Bundesliga was the “the example to follow.”

Here’s what he also said about the return of La Liga.:

“It will be determined by the health authorities. I want it to be as soon as possible. We are working for the resumption from June 12,” he said.

“I hope it is also on Mondays and that there is sensitivity on the part of the federation. The fans’ problem no longer exists in this situation.”
