Fabio Coentrao will be pleased for the break.
The Welsh wizard, who has only recently returned to the first team following a long injury lay-off, joined his Real Madrid teammates for a quick ‘rondo’.
As you can see in the above video, Bale, who was sent off in Los Blancos’ La Liga game with Las Palmas at the start of the month, was altogether more relaxed in training.
So relaxed in fact that when the ball came his way he mistimed where it was heading and was embarrassed when it popped straight through his legs.
Now nutmegs happen surprisingly often on the Real Madrid training ground, despite the level of talent on display.
But that doesn’t mean they are ever ignored, as CR7 proves in the video.
After letting the Welshman know he is there with a little kick from behind, he then grabs hold of Bale as the rest of the squad laughs.
The clip concludes with Bale, who appears to try and explain how he managed to get nutmegged, being grabbed by Ronaldo.
The Portuguese then squeezes his shoulders for good measure, just so he knows without any possible doubt that everyone saw him get nutmegged. Brilliant.
