A second day of medical and physical checks for the Paris Saint-Germain squad ahead of their scheduled return to the training pitch.

A first group of players headed to the American Hospital, namely Mauro Icardi, Kylian Mbappé, Neymar Jr and Angel Di Maria, who underwent number of endurance and cardio tests as well as scans to determine what kind of shape they are in.

The players' health has been the centre of everyone's attention with the medical and sporting staff working to enable the Parisians to get back onto the pitch in the very best condition possible after such a long lay-off.
