Senegal defender Pape Souare has returned to full training with his Premier League side Crystal Palace 11 months after he was seriously injured in a car crash.

The defender broke his thigh bone and jaw in the crash on the M4 near London in September 2016 and had to be cut free from his car by a team of firefighters and required airlifting to the hospital.
