Champions League winners Real are training at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) during their pre-season tour of the US.

And former Southampton and Tottenham star Bale, now playing in the west-coast city for Steve Cherundolo’s side, stopped by to say hello.

Los Blancos posted a video of the encounter on their official Instagram account with the caption: ‘Good to see you, @GarethBale11! ¡Bale presenció nuestro entrenamiento en UCLA!’, which translates to: ‘Bale witnessed our training at UCLA!’
