Spurs announce Bale back in fortnight

Gareth Bale has escaped serious injury and will return to training in a fortnight at Tottenham.

Bale was carried off on a stretcher during the final seconds of Spurs' 2-2 draw against Basle, prompting fears the 22-goal forward could be out for a lengthy period.

A Spurs statement read: "The club can confirm that Gareth Bale (sprained ankle ligaments), William Gallas (calf strain) and Aaron Lennon (soft tissue contusion below the knee) all underwent scans today (Friday) after being forced off with injuries during our Europa League quarter-final first leg draw with Basel last night.

"The results of these scans have indicated that all three players are expected to return to training within two weeks.

"Bale, Gallas and Lennon have all commenced their treatment today and are responding positively."
