Madrid: Gareth Bale said on Thursday he was "a bit behind" his new Real Madrid team-mates in terms of fitness, after a close season hampered by injury.
But the big-money signing from English Premier League side Tottenham said he hope to be back to his best as soon as possible and maintained that his troublesome foot was better.
"I feel good. I have been training in the last week with Wales. I have had two good sessions today and I got half an hour or 40 minutes game-time with Wales (on Tuesday)," the 24-year-old told reporters at the launch of Madrid's third kit.
