Socceroo winger Bernie Ibini is back running as the former Mariners and Sydney FC player continues his rehabilitation from a broken leg with his Belgian side Club Brugge.
Ibini has been out of action since the start of Brugge's pre-season.
A video on the club's website shows the attacker working on his proprioception and ankle strength by running on a soft surface.
Brugge declared Ibini is "training hard to be able to join the group as quickly as possible".
The 23-year-old broke his fibula on the opening day of pre-season in a routine exercise.
Ibini also posted a picture on Instagram, claiming the fracture is healed.
