Retired former Barcelona and France defender Eric Abidal has been released from hospital, six weeks after a liver transplant.

Abidal was told he needed the operation earlier this year, almost 12 months after surgery to remove a tumour.

The player's cousin supplied the donor organ and Abidal went through the procedure last month.
