VIDEO: Real Madrid Star Gareth Bale Attempts the NBA’s Half-Court Challenge

Things haven’t exactly been going well for Gareth Bale on the pitch in recent months.

The Real Madrid winger – and most expensive player on the planet – has struggled for form and received some harsh criticism in the Spanish press and from the Bernabeu fans.

But now Bale has tried his hand at basketball after accepting an NBA challenge on Twitter to attempt the half-court shot.

Bale got himself all kitted out in a Miami Heat jersey for the challenge which would see his make five attempts from the halfway line of the court.

You can check out how he got on in the video below.
