(MUTE) VARIOUS OF TRAINING SESSION IN PROGRESS STORY: Barcelona and Atletico Madrid resumed group training on Monday (May 18) for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted sport worldwide in March.

Barca and Atletico joined clubs across Spain's top two divisions in training in groups of up to 10 players after getting the green light from the government to move into the penultimate stage of the league's four-phase plan to return to action.

Organising body La Liga have said they hope to resume the final 11 rounds of matches, which will be played without spectators, from June 12, although the return to competition requires the approval of the government.

Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix has said he and his team mates would be happy to re-start the season next weekend if it were up to them "We're feeling very good and are very excited about playing again, if it were up to us we would return this weekend but we'll have to wait and work hard so we can get off to a good start," Felix said.
