Tottenham Hotspur’s jet-heeled midfielder Gareth Bale was on Sunday honoured by his fellow players, winning the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year at a London ceremony. The former Southampton player becomes only the third player to win both awards in the same season and the fifth to claim the main prize twice. “It’s a massive honour,” said the 23-year-old. “To be voted by your peers is one of the biggest things in the game.”AFP/PHOTO: AP
