Bale misses training with flu

Gareth Bale is said to be suffering with flu ahead of Real Madrid’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

Los Blancos host the German champions in the first leg of their European Cup semi-final later this week.

But they may have to do so without the Welsh winger, who missed Monday’s training session with ‘flu-like symptoms’.

The former Tottenham man has been the toast of the capital this week after his match-winning goal in the Copa del Rey final.

But Carlo Ancelotti could well have to do without their world-record man after he sat out today with illness.

That bad news was negated somewhat by the revelation that Cristiano Ronaldo completed the session, and is set to return for the first time in three weeks for the game.
