Gareth Bale has told Los Angeles FC he will see them soon in a message posted as it was announced the Wales captain is joining the Major League Soccer club. After weeks of speculation – that included the always seemingly unlikely idea that he might move from Real Madrid to play in the Championship for Cardiff City – Bale has opted to play in the United States as he prepares to lead Wales into the World Cup in Qatar later this year.

Bennett was described as “a great gentleman and a great rugby player” as giants of the sport from Wales and beyond united in tribute to him at a remembrance service at the stadium. Bennett, who died earlier this month after a long illness at the age of 73, captained Wales and the British and Irish Lions.
Rhys Jones has described being selected for a third Commonwealth Games as his “gold medal moment”. Anything else he achieves on the Alexander Stadium track in Birmingham this summer will be a bonus, says the para sprinter.
