Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has returned to training after recovering from a bout of coronavirus.
The Switzerland captain contracted COVID-19 during the most recent international break, after which the Swiss FA confirmed that he had turned down the chance to be vaccinated.
Now, Xhaka has been seen being put through his paces in Arsenal training on Wednesday, although he remains suspended in domestic action for the time being.

The 28-year-old served the first of a three-game ban for his red card against Manchester City during the Gunners' recent win over Norwich City, and he will also miss fixtures with Burnley and AFC Wimbledon in the Premier League and EFL Cup.
However, Xhaka's return to training means that he should be available for the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur on September 26.
