Legendary goalkeeper Iker Casillas has reported back to Porto pre-season training after suffering a heart attacking not too long ago.
Casillas, who made 725 appearances for Spanish giants Real Madrid, was hospitalised after collapsing with an acute myocardial infarction two months ago.
There were fears that may be the end of Casillas' playing days but the Spaniard has come back fighting and is now back on the football pitch.

On Monday, Casillas - who won five La Liga titles and three Champions Leagues with Madrid, as well as winning the World Cup once and the Euros twice with Spain - took to social media to inform his followers he was back.
The 38-year-old posted a picture on social media of him joining up with his Porto team-mates before they dusted off their football boots for the start of pre-season.
The shot-stopper wrote: 'Back to work. First day', alongside a smiley face emoji as he revealed his delight in getting back to business again.
Casillas was quick to allay fears following his shock heart attack on May 1, posting a picture of himself smiling in his hospital bed, alongside an update on his condition.
'All under control here, a big scare but everything is intact. Thank you very much for the messages and affection,' he wrote on his Twitter page.
Casillas had been working at the PortoGaia Training Centre in preparation for their league encounter with Aves at the beginning of May.
