In his Instagram story Neymar wrote:"Bike ride on the little bicycle with Rica and Gil."

The Brazil national team captain appeared to be in fine shape despite suggesting he will know his World Cup fate in three weeks time.

Neymar while speaking about his recovery said:"There isn’t an exact date yet. I have the last exam, if I’m not mistaken, I’m not sure, on May 17.

“I’ll be cleared to play. Then I’ll see, it depends on how things develop, it depends on my next exams. It has not been decided.

“I hope I won’t watch the World Cup on TV!

“I will have enough time to prepare. It’s evolving well. I will arrive better than I was before.”
