7:44 am on 2 September 2013

Tottenham Hotspur's winger Gareth Bale has joined the Spanish football club Real Madrid for a world record fee of 100-million euros.

In confirming the deal, Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas says Bale leaves the London club with great memories from last season when he scored 26 goals, and scooped the major accolades for the season.

The 24 year old Welshman had been with Spurs since 2007, and he's signed a 6-year deal with the Spanish club subject to passing a medical test.
