Since Gareth Bale's world record breaking £85.3million signing by Real Madrid it is fair to say he has left behind the weedy teenager with big ears and become a pretty awesome guy. 

From spikes, to slick comb-overs and now a pretty impressive pony tail, Gareth Bale's hair has been on an impressive journey itself.

Kroos snub

Alongside his own brand, based on his infamous 'Eleven of hearts' goal celebration, and incredible footballing ability, it is fair to say the 26-year-old is one guy you would not turn down a high five from, right?

Wrong, earlier this week, during a friendly with Bayern Munich, thousands of football fans were left feeling sympathetic for the Welshman, who was brutally blanked by Toni Kroos when offering a high five from the bench. 

Kroos was substituted with 20 minutes remaining and as he walked off the field, Bale offered him a high five for his on-field efforts. However Kroos just carried on walking, seemingly not seeing Bale's attempts.

Bayern best Real

The night carried on in a miserable fashion for Real, who lost 1-0 due to a Robert Lewandowski strike in the dying embers off the game.

The German latched onto a cross from new signing Douglas Costa to make it two goals in as many games and allow Pep Guardiola's men to lift the Audi Cup.

Bale's night did have one happy ending, as Kroos finally reciprocated his high five on the flight home, much to the delight off social eggheads everywhere. 

Bayern season kicks off at home to Hamburg on August 9 while Real Madrid’s season begins on August 23 away to Sporting Gijon.
