Neymar shows he is ready for World Cup comeback as PSG star kicks ball around with his son

The Brazilian superstar, 26, is currently on the sidelines as he recovers from surgery on his metatarsal.

Neymar had originally been tipped to be in for a real battle to be ready for this summer's tournament, but appears to be making good progress.

In a video posted on his Instagram, Neymar – still wearing a cast and on crutches – aims a left-footed pass to his son Davi Lucca.

The six-year-old kicks the ball in the air when it comes to him and Neymar uses his heavily-protected right foot to control it.

The video is the first time Neymar has been filmed kicking a ball since he injured his fifth metatarsal against Marseille on February 25.

The 26-year-old is expected to return to the French capital in May to continue his rehabilitation.

He recently told reporters in his native Brazil: "I am going to have enough time to get to the World Cup and prepare myself.
