Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Jese and Luka Modric participated in a crossbar challenge this week on their training ground, in the run-up to tomorrow’s El Clasico against Barcelona.
Bale went back to his Welsh roots and encouraged his Real Madrid teammates to try hitting the crossbar with a rugby ball. The results are interesting to see, but you have to wonder how many takes all of them had to do to get the final video looking as smooth as it did.
