It was called the most important goal of his career and after it became the goal that won Real Madrid the first of a possible three trophies, we are not surprised.
Gareth Bale has taken to Spain like our Footyettes to a jug of sangria and we have been following the Welshman’s progress with a keen eye.
His goal against Barcelona has been the cherry on the top of a nicely iced cake and the fact that Bale managed to outfox the Cules and their star signing Neymar to boot made him a hero in Madrid.
After a shaky start to the season and a few injuries, people did doubt if Bale was worth his huge price tag, but given his form when it really matters, that cannot really be called into question anymore.
Normally it would be the perma-tanned Cristiano Ronaldo occupying our attentions in the shirtless stakes, but today it is Bale – and what a view it is.
Without further ado, we will reveal the torso of the team – Gareth Bale. What a shame he has an equally gorgeous WAG and little girl to boot!
