Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale has recovered from his ankle injury and completed today's training session with his teammates.

From RealMadrid's report:

Real Madrid have turned their attentions to the Champions League. After their win at El Sadar, the Whites return to training and have started preparations for the game against Napoli, corresponding to the first leg of the Champions League last sixteen (Wednesday, 8:45pm CET). The big news of the day was Bale re-joining the group, as he completed the session along with his teammates.

The starting XI against Osasuna carried out recovery exercises using the indoor facilities, and some also took to the pitch to run. The rest of the group undertook an intense session centred around different possession and pressing drills, shots on goal and games on reduced size pitches.

The Welsh player will try to be ready for Real Madrid's Champions League match against Napoli, but the club will not risk another injury.
