Beckham back to full fitness

10:21 am on 30 December 2009

The England football player David Beckham has recovered from a bruised right ankle and an AC Milan doctor says the midfielder is in top shape.

Beckham has participated in two training sessions since returning to the Serie A side.

Beckham has returned to Milan on loan from the Los Angeles Galaxy to boost his chances of making England's World Cup squad after a successful stint at the Italian club last season.

He had trouble with his ankle in the run-up to the Major League Soccer Cup final, which the Galaxy lost to Real Salt Lake in November.
