STORY: La Liga stars returned on Wednesday (May 6) to their training grounds for the first time since early March to undergo testing for the coronavirus.

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Sergio Ramos and Gareth Bale were among the Barca and Real Madrid players who attended medicals, the first steps towards resuming individual training.

Barca's last match was a 1-0 victory over Real Sociedad on March 7, which took them two points clear of Real Madrid with 11 rounds of matches remaining in the league campaign.

La Liga's organizing body announced on Monday (May 4) that all clubs would begin testing their players this week as part of the first phase of a four-step protocol to return to playing matches, without spectators, in June.
