Brazilian superstar Neymar left hospital by helicopter on Sunday, a day after a successful foot operation, to begin his recovery ahead of a possible World Cup return.

Confederation spokesman Vinicius Rodrigues said the surgery took place Saturday at the Mater Dei Hospital in the southeastern city of Belo Horizonte.

The world's most expensive footballer was operated on in Belo Horizonte by the Brazil national team doctor.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward fractured his fifth metatarsal during his side's 3-0 defeat of Marseille in Ligue 1 on February 25 and is expected to miss the next three months.

The Brazilian chose to undergo an operation after breaking his fifth metatarsal against Marseille last weekend, rather than recover in the usual way and play on pain-killing injections.

Neymar is now expected to miss the next three months of action, likely ruling him out for the rest of the club season and seeing him return to fitness just in time for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation. The operation was to fix a cracked fifth metatarsal in his right foot.

"Re-education will begin immediately under the direction of a club physiotherapist. In six weeks we will make a new evaluation", Rodrigo Lasmar said after performing the operation.

"Neymar is sad, but understands he has no alternative now".

Now the question is whether the 26-year-old player can catch any of PSG's remaining season, and even what kind of shape he will be in at the start of Brazil's World Cup campaign in Russian Federation this June. "He will devote himself to being well as soon as possible", said Lasmar.

However, they are 3-1 down going into the second leg of their Champions League, last 16 tie at home to Real Madrid on Tuesday.
