Real Madrid have revealed that Gareth Bale has "swelling but no tear" after undergoing a scan on the calf injury that saw him released from Wales duty this week.
"Following tests carried out on Gareth Bale, he has been diagnosed with swelling but no tear in the soleus muscle of his left leg," Real said in a statement on Wednesday. "His recovery will be monitored."
Bale set for 10 to 15 days on sidelines
It is understood that an injury of this nature rules the 28-year-old out for between 10 and 15 days.
Bale, who missed Real's LaLiga win over Espanyol on Sunday after limping out of last week's Champions League victory at Borussia Dortmund, had joined up with the Wales squad for his country's World Cup qualifiers with Georgia and the Republic of Ireland, but returned to Spain after being examined by Welsh FA medical staff.
