Gareth Bale has been under pressure at Madrid for months

But Bale has silenced the boo-boys with a simply breathtaking strike against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.

Football porn.

The goal is potentially good news for Spurs, who know the German side’s results will have a huge bearing on their chances of qualifying from the group.
