Real Madrid's midfielder Kaka returned to a training session on Thursday after one-month staying away with a hernia, the Spanish club said.

"Kaka appears to have recovered from his sports hernia and today got his first feel for the ball in several weeks. He and Cristiano Ronaldo teamed up during the second half of the session to work on various drills," the club said in a statement.

Real will hold two more training sessions before it faces Osasuna in the league on Sunday in Pamplona and it is not yet clear if the 27-year-old will be called up for the squad for that match.

Real have won all four of their matches in Kaka's absence, leading some in the Spanish media to suggest that Real play better without the 65-million-euro (93.5-million-dollar) summer signing from AC Milan.

Real went into the Christmas break two points behind leaders and champions Barcelona in the La Liga.
