Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has paid a visit to his France teammates after he was cleared by UEFA on Friday for doping.
The France international could have been part of a team that has reached the finals of Euro 2016 on home soil had he not been involved in a drugs case with UEFA.
The centre-back posted a series of pictures on his personal Twitter account of him visiting his teammates as they prepare to take on Portugal on Sunday evening at the Stade de France.
The former Paris Saint-Germain defender is seen talking with ex-teammate Blaise Matuidi and posing alongside Arsenal striker Oliver Giroud.

The 26-year-old posted his motivational message for the team ahead of the final, ‘A quick visit to encourage the team before the final.’
The powerful defender, who has won 28 caps for his country, was originally suspended for 30 days by UEFA for testing positive for a fat burner after a random sample in the Europa League match against Manchester United.
But the case was dismissed just days before the Euro 2016 final.
