The 31-year-old Bayern and Germany goalkeeper took part in the 20-minutes worth of exercises at the Bundesliga champion's training ground in Munich having only been able to run in training on Monday.

"It felt so good to be back in training," said Neuer, who is expected to be fit for Bayern's first league game of the season on Friday, 18 August against Bayer Leverkusen, said on the club's website.

Neuer missed the Confederations Cup win in Russia last month with Germany after fracturing his left foot at the end of the season.

Neuer is expected to miss Bayern's German Super Cup showdown at Borussia Dortmund on Saturday with reserve goalkeeper Sven Ulreich set to deputise.
