Bale celebrates great season with Real Madrid and Wales

Real Madrid's Gareth Bale had a fine season, helping his club win the Champions League and taking Wales to the semi-finals of the European Championship. Afterwards the footballer took his much deserved holidays, alongside his close family.

Bale hires private island to propose

According to reports the Madrid player hired the private island of Tagomago, a small slice of paradise in the Balearics close to Ibiza, where he celebrated his 27th birthday and took the opportunity to aks his girlfriend Emma Rhys-Jones to marry him. She did of course say yes. 

The cost of hiring the island is somewhat north of 450,000 euros for the week, though the Welshman can probably afford it. He just banked a 600,000 euro bonus for winning the Champions League with Real Madrid. And his salary isn't too shabby either.
