Bale scores Real Madrid's fastest Champions League goal with wonder strike

Updated: 

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale celebrated his new deal by scoring the club's fastest goal in the Champions League with a stunning volley against Legia Warsaw.

The Wales international, who signed a contract extension that ties him to the club until 2022 and reportedly made him the world's best-paid player on Sunday, broke the deadlock in a game being played behind closed doors in Warsaw after just 57 seconds.

And he did so in spectacular style, lashing a fierce long-range volley into the top-right corner after Legia had failed to clear their lines.

The goal was Bale's fifth of the season for Madrid.
