Gareth Bale has been diving for all the right reasons in training this week, as he took a turn playing as goalkeeper.

The 23-year-old Welshman was on the receiving end of a well-struck penalty from youth keeper Jonathan Miles, and as you can see, he pulled off a brilliant save.

Bale tweeted out the video to his followers with the message:

If our goalkeepers get injured, I think I'm ready to step in #moveoverhugo

Somewhere at Spurs' Enfield training ground, Brad Friedel wept, wondering why Bale didn't include a #moveoverbrad hashtag. Nobody heard him though.
