Jesus Olmo has named Wales' legendary left-footer as the best athlete he has ever worked with.
Olmo joined Madrid's staff as club doctor in the summer of 2013, before becoming part of the team that lifted three UEFA Champions League titles.
The Spaniard took some time to have a chat via English media "Perhaps the best athlete I've ever seen is Bale," Olmo said via The Sun.
"Gareth Bale is a natural athlete who can excel in practically any sport.
"He has incredible athletic skills, and I would also say technical skills. He is the one who impressed me most in all aspects," he concluded.
Meanwhile, the 32-year-old Bale has been back at Los Blancos from a loan spell at Tottenham Hotspur, and with Zinedine Zidane gone, Bale is expected to become the leading figure he once was before he fell out with Zidane.
Up next for Carlo Ancelotti's side is a friendly meet up against Italian powerhouse AC Milan.
