Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale is established as one of the greatest footballing talents in the world, which is exactly the reason why the Spanish giants paid a world record fee (via BBC Sport) to bring the Welshman to the Bernabeu.
Professional football players are often asked what they would be doing for a living had they not realised their dream and many insist that they were destined for sport and on the basis of this clip, Bale could’ve been rather handy at basketball.
The superstar took on the NBA half-court challenge this week, which entails attempting to get the ball into the net from half-way, a skill which demands power and precision.
After missing by inches on his first go, Bale recorded a clean swish and judging by his technique, it seems as though he is rather familiar with the sport. This comes off the back of Bale’s man of the match performance for Wales in their 3-0 win against Israel to leave them in a great position to qualify for their first major international tournament since 1958.
