THIS IS GARETH Bale’s application with the Intellectual Property Office to trademark his goal celebration.

Supposedly, the Spurs star, who won PFA Player and Young Player of the Year as well as the Footballer Writers’ award recently, is hoping the heart-shaped sign he makes with his fingers along with his number 11 inside it will be sold on clothing and other merchandise.

He obviously believes he can be a global brand like David Beckham or Cristiano Ronald but, come on, surely there are better logos out there.

It’s not like he even came up with the hand signal.
