Cristiano fighting to get fit

Madrid: Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo completed a full training session on Monday as he races to regain fitness before Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final, first leg at home to holders Bayern Munich.

The Portugal captain, who has missed Real’s last four matches with knee and muscle problems in his left leg, is the top scorer in Europe’s elite club competition this term with 14 goals, equalling the record for one edition. “Cristiano Ronaldo... completed the entire session with the group,” Real, chasing a record-extending 10th continental crown, said.

Gareth Bale was unable to train due to a bout of flu, the club added without specifying whether he was expected to recover for the match at the Bernabeu. (Reuters)
