Norwich City players have returned to training for the first time since the Premier League season was halted due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The Canaries' squad have been keeping fit at home since football was suspended in March.

However, top flight clubs were given the green light this week to resume training in small groups, with no contact allowed.

Norwich were reportedly the final Premier League club to carry out testing on players and staff.

Everyone at the club has now been given the all clear, meaning it's now safe for training to re-start.

The Canaries released a short video on social media of striker Teemu Pukki and midfielders Mario Vrančić and Onel Hernández walking out on to the turf at the club's Colney Training Base on Thursday morning.

Players and staff will continue to be tested on a regular basis, and anyone who tests positive will have to self-isolate for seven days.

On Tuesday, it was announced there had been six positive tests across three Premier League clubs.
