Gareth Bale is all set to add another feather to his cap, by opening his own sports bar in Cardiff.

"It has been a big goal and ambition of mine to open a sports bar in Cardiff," Bale said. "There is not a specific main venue where you can go and watch sport. It would be nice for people to come and for it to be known for airing big events, with nice food and drink with a family friendly atmosphere.

"I have been to sports bars around the world before and it is nice to get that sports bar food, the pizzas, the burgers, the picky stuff that everyone loves. We hope to have the best burger in Cardiff and really looking forward to getting people in to enjoy the experience."

The new bar will be opened in Cardiff, and is a joint venture with Brains.

They say he has helped put the drinks menu together, even though he doesn't drink, and he will even have his own beer on sale.
