Ronaldo completes Real Madrid training session — but Bale sits out

Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos were fit enough to practice as normal with the rest of the squad, but Bale was held out with an illness.

Cristiano Ronaldo was fit enough to complete a full training session Monday for Real Madrid as the club prepares for the first leg of its Champions League semifinal with Bayern Munich.

The 29-year-old has been battling to shake off a hamstring injury sustained in the quarterfinal win over Borussia Dortmund and was initially a doubt for Wednesday's meeting at Santiago Bernabeu.

However, the attacker was able to train Sunday before the club confirmed he completed a full routine session Monday morning, meaning he will likely be fit to feature for Carlo Ancelotti's side against the reigning European champion.

Sergio Ramos, who has been struggling with a minor injury, also completed the session, but Gareth Bale was forced to sit out due to illness.
