Gareth Bale’s status for Tottenham Hotspur’s Sunday match against Manchester City remains uncertain. Although the world class winger has been active during team training sessions, his fitness is still questionable at best.
According to his Twitter feed, the Welsh star was not busy training this afternoon. At approximately 2:00 pm, the #askbale questioning began. Hours later it was still trending. Bale tweeted, “Just finished a late lunch, got 15 minutes… #AskBale GO!”
Apparently, Tottenham supporters are infatuated with his diet. The first three questions the star answered were about his lunch, pre-game diet or favourite food preferences. The Welshman prefers jam to marmalade and fancies cherry over any other. According to Bale, Weetabix make the best pre-game snack. Finally, his “late lunch” consisted of chicken and tomato pasta.
He went on to answer a bundle of non-football related questions. Bale likes to play golf in his free time. He enjoys Two and a Half Men, with and without Charlie Sheen.
Bale could not choose one favourite goal from this season answering, “Winner at West Ham or the goal at Norwich.”
Like most trending hashtags, this one generated some humorous responses. Here are the best ones.
