Eden Hazard picked up an ankle injury during a training session with Belgium on Sunday at the National Football Centre in Tubize.

The injury ruled him out of Belgium’s 2-1 win over Czech Republic and it’s believed that the 26-year-old will return to training in the middle of September.

Hazard as back in London for a surgery operation on his fractured ankle on Monday and he has revealed that the surgery was a success. He posted a short message on his instagram page: “Everything went well with my ankle operation, now I start the road to recovery! I will be stronger. Thank you for your support everyone. #family#cfc”

His club and country teammate Michy Batshuayi has also extended his wishes to the Chelsea star.

He posted on twitter: “Stay strong bro @hazardeden10 💙 longer holidays than expected but you’ll be back stronger 💪✊”
