Bale: "Cristiano is the best player in the world right now"

Gareth Bale already knows who his favourite is for next year's Ballon d'Or.

The Tottenham winger, who has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer, took to his Twitter account to praise Cristiano Ronaldo after the forward hit a hat-trick in Real Madrid's 4-0 win over Celta Vigo at the Santiago Bernabéu.

"Another hat-trick for Ronaldo! I think he is the best player in the world right now," wrote the Welshman, following his post with the hashtag "#ballondor2013'.

Moments later Bale was asked by a Twitter user which player was the best he had ever come up against, and the Spurs player responded: "Probably Cristiano Ronaldo or Ronaldinho".

The two players played on opposite sides when Real Madrid drew Tottenham in the quarter finals of the 2011 Champions League, which Madrid won 5-0 on aggregate.

The Portuguese forward has had a flying start to 2013, scoring five goals in his first two games of the year.
