Gareth Bale arrives for Real Madrid training

The world's most expensive footballer, Gareth Bale, has been training with his new club for the first time.

He was welcomed by Cristiano Ronaldo, manager Carlo Ancelotti and sporting director Zinedine Zidane.

The 24-year-old agreed a record £85.3 million deal to move earlier this month.

It eclipsed the £80 million Real Madrid paid Manchester United for Ronaldo in 2009.

Bale could make his debut for the team when Real Madrid play at Villarreal in La Liga on Saturday.
