It will go on converting an empty building into a 23,000sqft golf bar in his home city of Cardiff.

Called Par 59, it will open in spring and have three nine-hole courses, a bar and a restaurant.

Bale, 32, who is paid about 500,000 a week, already owns the Elevens sports bar nearby.

His newest venture is one of three businesses to get an undisclosed share of an interest-free Welsh government loan.

Cardiff council said the bar would help the citys post-pandemic recovery.

Par 59 co-founder Nick Saunders said it would create 45 jobs and occupy a site that had been empty for six years.
