France international defender Eric Abidal on Sunday took part in training with Barcelona, just days after his club announced that he required a liver transplant.
"Abidal, who is waiting for a liver transplant in the coming weeks, participated in a training session", the Catalan giants said on their web site.
Abidal, 32, had a tumour removed from his liver in March last year. The announcement that he now has to have a transplant has seen an outpouring of support from the world of football, including at Barca's rivals Real Madrid.
