Gareth Bale is currently enjoying some rest and relaxation in his native Wales after his phenomenal efforts for both club and country over the past few months.
The 27-year-old has been afforded some extra time off to recover from his exploits at Euro 2016 in particular, whilst most of his Real Madrid teammates are back in pre-season training ahead of the new campaign.
But you just can't keep Bale away from the football pitch, and, in a video uploaded to his official Twitter account today, the Welsh wizard showed off another beautiful long-range finish during what looked like a kick about with his mates.

Joking about the rainy Welsh weather in the text accompanying the video, Bale also provided a pretty impressive celebration after smashing the ball in from outside the box with his trusty left foot.

While the Real fans and staff would prefer Bale to be following Cristiano Ronaldo's summer routine and putting his feet up in Ibiza, Bale seems to be making sure he doesn't return to Los Blancos with any rust after his extended break.
Considering the form he was in for Wales at Euro 2016 - spearheading the nation's unlikely run to the tournament's semi finals - that was never likely to happen.
Having gotten engaged to his partner since then, it has certainly been an eventful summer for the most expensive footballer in the world and he will be hoping to continue his success on the pitch when he does return to Spain to link up with Zinedine Zidane's squad.
Los Blancos will have big expectations for their star, too, after seeing him kick on from helping them to lift the 2015/16 Champions League to become one of the stars of Euro 2016.
With Barcelona looking as strong as ever, and the likes of Manchester City and Bayern Munich strengthening this summer, Real Madrid know they have a lot of competition both in La Liga and the Champions League.
If Gareth Bale can transfer his goal-scoring ability on a Welsh field to the Bernabeu and beyond, they will have a lot greater chance of achieving their ambitions.
