[Gareth Bale talks about his relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo] We’ve always got on well. We’ve scored a lot of goals, given each other a lot of assists, and won two Champions Leagues. So it hasn’t gone too bad. He’s changed his game slightly. At Manchester United, you’d see him running from deep. He’s more of a striker. He’s very effective in the box, scoring goals, making assists. As you get older, even I’m starting to change my game a little bit. He knows what he’s doing and he’s doing it very well

[Gareth Bale reacts to surpassing Ian Rush to become Wales’ all-time leading goalscorer after scoring a hat-trick a 6-0 win over China PR] It’s amazing, and it’s on my daughter’s birthday, so happy birthday to her and I’m disappointed I can’t be with her. It’s great individually to get the record but always the most important thing is that the team plays well and with the new manager [Ryan Giggs] it’s important to get off to a good start

[Gareth Bale talks about playing for the Wales national team] I definitely have more excitement playing for Wales. I’ve been with most of the older players since we were in the Under-17s. It’s like playing with your mates down the park on a Sunday. It’s normal

[Gareth Bale on being dubbed The Golfer by the Madrid media] find it hilarious to be honest, especially some of the pictures and stuff my friends send me. On one [headline] it said triple bogey - and I’ve never had a triple bogey! At least give me an albatross! It’s funny
