He’s already nicked his free-kick technique, his hair-cut, his employers and his ridiculously hewn physique in recent times, but now Gareth Bale has even half-inched Cristiano Ronaldo’s trademark goal celebration after scoring his first goal for Wales against Andorra last night with a budget version of Ronaldo’s leap.
In fact, it’s almost as if Bale realises what he’s doing mid-air when he turns round to see Simon Church grinning at him instead of Karim Benzema and attempts to pull out upon landing – only to come to the jarring realisation that he’s lost himself somewhere along the way…
Poor lad. Another hair-banded victim of his own ridiculousness.
