Bale tweets about golf as Hazard is unveiled
Looking forward to watching the US Open this week. Pebble is an amazing course, as long as you drive it well. Cheering for all the #TeamTaylorMade guys this week, especially @djohnsonpga. #usopen pic.twitter.com/9ZEQ0MW09B— Gareth Bale (@GarethBale11) June 13, 2019
Some 50,000 fans filed into the Bernabeu on Thursday night to see Eden Hazard being unveiled by Real Madrid.
While the prospect of a new €100 million player captured the interest of most Real fans, at least one of Hazard's new teammates had other things on his mind.
Right at the moment that the Bernabeu was filling up with 50,000 fans for the Belgium forward's unveiling, Gareth Bale sent out a tweet wishing everybody good luck at the US Open, which got under way at Pebble Beach in California.
Bale has reportedly been imaginatively nicknamed "The Golfer" by other members of the Real squad due to the vast amount of time he spends out on the course rather than mix with his teammates.
Rumours also abound that the Welshman is content to sit out the remainder of his vast contract at Los Blancos despite being informed that he is surplus to requirements.
Three years of non-stop, round-the-clock golf? He probably couldn't be happier!
Hull to return to 'Tiger stripe' kit
Hull City have gone back to the 1990s in seeking inspiration for their latest home strip. The Championship side have revived the spirit of their classic "tiger stripe" kits of 1992-95 and come up with a brilliant modern take on the theme.
Hull's infamously literal Nineties tiger stripes have attained cult status over the years, rightfully taking their place in the grand pantheon of hideous football kits.
Happily, the 2019-20 design is an altogether more subtle approach and therefore doesn't look like something plucked straight from Dame Joan Collins' wardrobe.
