Borussia Dortmund bus attack: Marc Bartra 'doing much better' following operation

Borussia Dortmund defender Marc Bartra has taken to Instagram to assure fans that he's "doing much better" after being hurt in the attack on his team's bus.

After an operation, Bartra posted a photo of himself with a bandage wrapped around much of his right arm, and a smaller bandage around his left wrist.

He made a thumbs-up gesture with his left hand.

The 26-year-old from Spain wrote: "Hello everybody! As you can see I am doing much better. Thank you everybody for all your support and your messages!

"All my strength to my team mates, supporters and fans and to @bvb09 for tonight's match!

Bartra's wrist and arm were wounded when three explosions near the team bus broke a window on Tuesday evening.

Dortmund's Champions League quarter final match against Monaco was rescheduled for Wednesday.

Dortmund says Bartra will not be able to play for several weeks.
