Luis Suarez is delighted to have completed his first Barcelona training session.

The Uruguay forward was able to train with Barca on Friday morning after the Court of Arbitration for Sport relaxed the "excessive" elements of the four-month ban incurred for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during the World Cup.

"I'm very happy to feel like a footballer again and to be with my team-mates," Suarez told the club's official website.

"I was really looking forward to starting. The situation made me feel very uncomfortable. I'm paying for an error I committed and have apologised for, but it needs to be forgotten about. Now I have to think about the future, which is Barcelona, the club I dreamed about playing for."
