Borussia Dortmund have given the "all-clear" to star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for their German Cup semi-final at Hertha Berlin after the Gabon international limped out of training on Monday.

Aubameyang, who has scored 37 goals in all competitions for Dortmund this season, broke off the last five minutes of the morning's session clutching his right foot as Borussia prepare for Wednesday's semi-final at Berlin's Olympic Stadium.

Dortmund-based newspaper the Ruhr Nachrichten posted a video on Twitter of Aubameyang limping out of training, but the club later said he should be fit to play in Berlin.

Aubameyang is on an incredible goal-scoring run in the German Cup, having scored in each of his last seven cup games dating back to the start of last season.

He has netted in each of Dortmund's three cup matches so far this season and also scored in the 2015 final defeat to Wolfsburg, when Borussia lost 3-1 in Berlin.

The 26-year-old sat out Sunday's 3-0 Bundesliga win at home to Hamburg which kept Dortmund second in the table, seven points behind leaders Bayern Munich with four games left.
