Wales and Real Madrid footballer Gareth Bale has become a father for the second time following the birth of his daughter Nava Valentina.

The winger, from Cardiff, announced news of her arrival on Twitter on Tuesday.

Last week it was reported he could miss Wales' Euro 2016 warm-up game in Ukraine to be with partner Emma Rhys-Jones for the birth.

Bale said he was "delighted to welcome another beautiful baby daughter".
