Real Madrid star Bale named Wales Player of Year
Bale, who will miss the World Cup qualifiers with Macedonia and Belgium through injury, also received the Fans' Player of the Year award, and Wales boss Chris Coleman had nothing but praise for his star man.
He said: "Gareth's definitely one of the best players I've seen. I've had the fortune of being up close and personal with him in training and he's a player that can take your breath away.
"In two or three seconds, he will do something that nobody else can do. He's a special player.
"He's serious about Wales, he's a Cardiff boy and patriotic and what he does for Welsh football is raise the interest in football for our country. He's brought that for us.
"He's a great player - and I still think he's getting better because of his age. He'll only get better working under a manager like Carlo Ancelotti and playing for Real Madrid with players like Cristiano Ronaldo."
