Belgian footballer Eden Hazard is recovering well and could be ready to play in June if La Liga, the Spanish football league, were to restart, according to Spanish sports daily AS.

The Real Madrid winger underwent surgery on his right ankle on 5 March and has been making steady progress. “Hazard went running for the first time a few days ago and plays football every day with his children in his backyard,” AS reported.

He also received a visit from a Real Madrid physiotherapist at his home to do exercises with him.
