The 34-year-old player had officially announced his retirement from professional football in January 2023 after an incredible 16-year career. Many fans were impressed with his efficiency in tennis and complimented his forehand. Some believed that the World No.1 tennis star Novak Djokovic had something to do with it.

Both legends of their sport had come together to play All-Star Match at the Marco Simone Golf Club in Rome, Italy. It was a match conducted ahead of the Ryder Cup. The 24 time Grand Slam winner was playing alongside the Welsh soccer player as part of Colin Montgomerie’s team.

The Serb and Welsh both impressed on the golf course, with the Serbian hitting some particularly impressive drives and Bale showing off his touch around the course. The duo teamed up to defeat F1 driver Carlos Sainz and Italian G4D golfer Tommaso Perrino 3-1 in their match. In the end, Team Monty emerged victorious from the All-Star golf match. They defeated Team Pavin 7-4 and both the players were delighted to have contributed to the team’s victory.
