Gareth Bale has continued his domination of Wales’ Player of the Year by winning the top gong for a fourth successive time.

For the sixth time in seven years, Real Madrid star Bale received the honour following a ceremony at the Football Association of Wales (FAW) awards on Tuesday. 

The 27-year-old starred during Wales’ memorable run to the Euro 2016 semi-finals, scoring three goals in the group stage, while he won a second Champions League title with Madrid.

With 64 caps to his name, Bale – who signed a new Madrid deal recently – is also on track to become the country’s all-time leading goalscorer as he is only three shy of equalling Ian Rush’s 28-goal record.

Stoke City midfielder Joe Allen walked away with two awards – the Players’ and Fans’ Player of the Year.

As for manager Chris Coleman, he won the FAW Special Award after guiding Wales to the semi-finals of the European Championships.

It was Wales’ first appearance at a major tournament since 1958.
