Luis Suarez can now join up with the Uruguay squad, who are currently preparing for the Copa America, after being given the all clear by Barcelona.

The Spanish champions said on Tuesday that Suarez has now completed the first phase of his recovery from a knee injury and is free to join up with his national team and continue his rehabilitation with their specialists.  

Suarez underwent surgery on a meniscus injury with Ramon Cugat after Barça's Champions League loss to Liverpool in May. 

The operation ruled him out of the Copa del Rey final against Valencia, which he watched from the stands, but does mean he will be fit for the Copa America in Brazil this month.
