Gareth Bale says he is recovering well from the calf injury that kept him out of the Great Britain Olympics team.

The Tottenham winger scored in his side's pre-season friendly with LA Galaxy which ended 1-1 on Tuesday and says his rehab has been going well and he will soon be at full fitness.

"After about 65 minutes my calf started to cramp up a bit but it was a good workout. It was one that I needed and it was good to get a goal as well," he told the club's official website.

"My rehab's gone very well at the club - we are well ahead of schedule.

"I am glad to be back. It's important to get a pre-season under my belt for the season forthcoming so I am just delighted to be back now without any problems."
