Tiger Woods has given his fans reason for optimism this week after being spotted training in a gym in the Bahamas.
Instagram user Ollie St John posted a picture with a sweat-drenched Woods in the gym at Albany, prompting rumours the 14-time major champion could soon be planning a comeback.
Woods was also this week spotted posing with Barcelona players Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and now PSG forward Neymar.
The former world number one has not played a competitve round of golf since withdrawing from the Dubai Desert Classic prior to the start of the second round in February.
Woods has been dogged by injury problems that led him to a fourth back surgery in April after a failed attempted comeback in January.

He was then arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and failed a road-side sobriety test.
Woods is said to have fallen asleep due to taking several prescription drugs and entered rehab, but as of this week he now looks to be on the mend.
The 79-time PGA Tour winner has played just 19 worldwide events since March 31, 2014.
