"There's no template for what Gareth has done," says Bale's old PE teacher.

Gwyn Morris made him play one-touch football against the other boys at Cardiff's Whitchurch High and he was allowed to use only his weaker foot to improve his game.

Mr Morris explains more to Eleanor Oldroyd on 5 live Breakfast.
