Gareth Bale has shown he's as good on the basketball court as he is on the football pitch, hitting three baskets in five attempts from the halfway line.

Basketball fan and Real Madrid and Wales winger Bale was answering an NBA challenge to various sports stars. His score easily beat those of other football players including Demba Ba and Petr Cech, who only managed one out of five.

Speaking after his display, Bale said: "If I were to challenge anyone to a Half Court Challenge it would be Luka Modrić and Lewis Hamilton," referring to his Croatian team mate and the Formula One world champion.
