More evidence that golf cures everything,

Gareth Bale, the Welsh soccer star that Real Madrid paid more than $100 million for in 2013, talked about his guns for the first time to The Olive Press on Sunday. Thanks to Kyle Porter, who first spotted the interview.

"I don't usually wear a vest, so no one sees my arms! I did a bit of running in the off-season, but nothing else," Bale said. "I'd played a fair bit of golf, so maybe it was from my golf swing. It could also be from the tan I've got from living in Spain."
