Last week, the forward underwent successful surgery having suffered damage to the peroneal tendons of his right ankle in Madrid's 2-1 Champions League win at Sporting CP.

Bale, who is reportedly set to miss four months of action, has now posted a video on social media thanking fans for their well wishes and stating that he is recovering well from going under the knife.

He said: "My recovery is going well. My ankle is feeling better every day.

"Good luck to the boys against Dortmund [in the Champions League on Wednesday] and I'll be watching here from home. Hala Madrid!"
