Gareth Bale has been turned into a character on the PGA Tour 2K23 golf video game.
The former Tottenham and Real Madrid star, 34, has a well-documented love of the sport, playing it whenever he got the chance during his football career – which came to an end earlier this year.
With more free time on his hands than ever before, Bale can't keep away from the course. He's partnered with Rory McIlroy at the BMW PGA Celebrity Pro-Am this week and is set to appear at the Ryder Cup.

One posted: "Gareth Bale becoming a playable character on 2k’s latest PGA Tour game feels like the perfect final chapter in the “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order” story." A second joked: "Wales, golf, golf video games. In that order."
A third echoed: "The “Wales, Golf, Madrid” prophecy has truly been fulfilled." And a fourth wrote: "Man's living his dream, I'm sure being a character here made/makes him more happier than being on FIFA."
"Wouldn’t surprise me if this meant more to him than any of the UCLs he won at Madrid," commented a fifth, while a sixth exclaimed: "Bro went from being 90 rated in FIFA to being in PGA 2k."
