Pep Guardiola has taken his first training session since taking over from Manuel Pellegrini as Manchester City head coach.
A number of senior players not involved in Euro 2016 or this summer's Copa America - including Samir Nasri, Fabian Delph, Wilfried Bony, Yaya Toure and Fernandinho - returned to the City Football Academy for the start of pre-season training this week.
Tuesday's session was overseen by former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Guardiola, who was joined by his coaching team.
City travel to China later this month to compete in the International Champions Cup - with a combination of live matches and highlights programmes to be shown on Sky Sports - where they will take on Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United.
Guardiola, who was officially unveiled as City manager at a specially arranged fans' event at the weekend, will be looking to improve on last season's fourth-place Premier League finish which ended with them 15 points adrift of winners Leicester.
Guardiola is due to hold his first press conference since taking up the position on Friday, which you can see on Sky Sports News HQ from 1:30pm on Friday.
