The Welsh winger was operated on at the King Edward VII Hospital, to repair the peroneal tendon injury, he picked up during their Champions League win over Sporting Lisbon last week.

Madrid did not put a time frame to his recovery, but reports say he could be out for up to three months.

“Our player Gareth Bale has successfully come through the operation he underwent today after suffering an injury to the peroneal tendons in his right ankle,” a club statement on Tuesday evening read.
