Neymar has undergone successful surgery on his broken foot, with the Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil star now starting his recovery process.
The 26-year-old suffered a fractured metatarsal during a domestic outing for PSG against Marseille last weekend.
After initial confusion as to whether he would be forced under the knife, the decision was taken to send him for an operation.
That procedure was carried out at the Materdei Hospital in Belo Horizonte on Saturday, with Brazilian news outlet UOL Esporte reporting that Neymar spent a little over two hours in theatre.
A statement released by PSG read: “The operation led by Dr. Rodrigo Lasmar went perfectly well. It consisted of the insertion of a screw placed at the level of the lesion of the fifth right metatarsal.
“Rehabilitation will begin immediately under the supervision of the physiotherapist of the club. A report will be made in six weeks to specify the possible date of resumption of training.”
