Jonas Gutierrez made his return to football today, playing for Newcastle United's development side against West Ham United.
The winger, who has beaten testicular cancer, has not been seen on the football pitch since April, when he was playing on a loan spell at Norwich City.
It is a remarkable comeback and one which will please every football fan, as the Argentine comes closer to playing competitive football again.
Newcastle won 4-1 thanks to goals from Gael Bigirimana, Adam Campbell, Cal Roberts and Liam Gibson. Gutierrez played for 87 minutes.
Gutierrez has made 177 appearances for the Mapgies' first team to date and everyone involved at the club will be hoping that he can return to a level where he will be able to add to that total soon.
