It looks as though Gareth Bale has spent his pre-season time off wisely back home in Wales, taking part in The Global Goals' #DizzyGoals challenge.

The Welshman has been spending some time at home as Real Madrid put the finishing touches on their preparations for the upcoming season, and uploaded a video to his 7.2 million Twitter followers this afternoon which showed just what he's been up to.

The #DizzyPenalty challenge has been taking social media by storm in recent weeks, with Raheem Sterling and Gary Lineker amongst the high-profile names to have taken part.

However Bale's effort may go down as the funniest  - the Real Madrid superstar looks more than groggy after spining around a ball 13 times before taking his run up in front of an open goal.

Despite the fact that he is currently the most expensive player in the history of the game, Bale sadly still couldn't get his penalty on target - much to the enjoyment of his watching friends. However it wasn't long before Bale got his revenge as one by one his friends suffered a similar fate when it came to taking the penalty.

The former Tottenham man will hope that the upbeat video will mark the start of a much more positive campaign in Madrid. He was booed by some of his own fans last season after a string of sub-par performances, however the 26-year-old is likely to be giving a starring role under new boss Rafa Benitez.
