Crystal Palace's Senegal defender Pape Souare has returned to full training 11 months after he was seriously injured in a car crash.

Souare, 27, broke his thighbone and jaw in the crash on the M4 near London in September 2016 and had to be cut free from his car by a team of firefighters.

The left-back made four appearances last season before the crash.

"Feeling blessed to come back for my first training session with the first team," he tweeted on Wednesday.external-link
