The England striker’s double took his tally to five goals in just seven games for club and country this season.
Spurs ace Bale, who also scored against the Royals, said: “Has he been in better nick? No.
“He’s looking sharp, a bit greedy as normal, but that’s him.
“It’s great for him and great for the team – as long as somebody’s scoring, I don’t think any of us mind.
“I don’t think that anyone’s ever doubted his ability to score goals and you always need a player in your team like him, who can just pop in with a goal.”
