Bale’s love of golf is well known, and he is claimed to have a three-hole golf course at his home, but the sport was a contentious topic during his soccer career.
It was a source of contempt, particularly during his tenure at Real Madrid, where he won five Champions League titles.
He posed, while on international duty with Wales, with a banner that read, ‘Wales. Golf. Madrid. In That Order’ – a move which sparked a backlash among supporters of the club.
