Real Madrid have released a few photos of their training session at Valdebebas on Thursday, with the Los Blancos players generally looking suitably trim and fettled as they limber up for this weekend's UEFA Super Cup tie against Sevilla in Cardiff next Tuesday evening.
Looking particularly hewn as he suns his guns in the Madrid heat is one Gareth Bale.
In fact, we'd go as far as to suggest that Bale may well have been working out a fair bit recently -- especially if this photo of him (click for an enlarged version) and his ridiculously cut physique is anything to go by.
Compare and contrast that image with this one of Bale at his Madrid medical for the full effect. Not that he was out of shape before, but blimey.
