Hatchet job on Gareth Bale's family jewels leaves him writhing

The Welshman took a kick straight to the bread basket, as they used to say in the WWE.

REAL MADRID CONTINUED their pursuit of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid this afternoon with a 2-0 win over Granada at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Real were victorious after goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema. The highlight of the match, and a particularly nasty one at that, was this gruesome hack at Los Blancos midfielder Gareth Bale. Granada defender Murillo may claim it was a ballsy challenge but Bale, and the referee that produced a yellow card, disagreed.
