The local police in Valencia have quite the sense of humor. After Gareth Bale score his absurdly amazing solo goal to give Real Madrid the Copa del Rey trophy, the cops issued him a fake but totally hilarious speeding ticket.

Well played, Valencia cops.
Not only that, but there’s some great humor in the details as well.
Scores: and assists
Model: Not at the moment
And because you know you want to watch it again, the goal that prompted the clever ticket:
And so, it has come to this.
After Gareth Bale scored his amazing solo goal on Wednesday night to clinch the Copa del Rey for Real Madrid, the most expensive player of all time could have gone on Twitter to thank pretty much anyone; his fans who believed in him; his family or girlfriend; Florentino Pérez for signing all those crazy paychecks; even Cristiano Ronaldo for getting injured so he could shine in the spotlight for once.
But who did Bale thank? The ball.

Yup, marketing at it’s finest. If you did not know, the maker of the brazuca, adidas, also sponsors both Real Madrid and Gareth Bale
And of course, the ball duly replied:

Bale, Real Madrid take the throne!
Barcelona v Real Madrid
The road to the UEFA Champions League final is down to just four teams, with one of those clubs Chelsea FC from the Barclays Premier League.
Chelsea is set to play Atletico Madrid in the semifinals, but before then club manager Jose Mourinho sat down for a fan Q&A session with Chelsea Magazine. Chelsea FC granted FOX Sports early access before the magazine launched on Monday.
Here are Mourinho’s thoughts on defensive strategy, versatile players on the pitch, and Premier League play versus La Liga, and much more:
In honor of National Siblings Day, we’re bringing you some of the best sibling action you’ll see on the soccer pitch:
Kristie and Samantha Mewis (USA)
These sisters have dreamed of playing soccer together for the US women’s national team since they were little girls. During the 2014 Algarve Cup, that dream became a reality:
Gonzalo and Federico Higuain (Argentina)
Gonzalo is clearly the more well-known Higuain, but older brother Federico has also had a decent career in soccer. He currently plays for the Columbus Crew, and scores really pretty goals, like this one:
Eden and Thorgan Hazard (Belgium)

Big brother Eden may be stealing the headlines now, but 21-year-old Thorgan isn’t far behind. While on-loan from Chelsea in the Jupiler League, the striker has been tearing it up — he even won the Golden Shoe for the 2013 season. It won’t be long until we see both brothers on the pitch for the Blues.

Cristiano Ronaldo is at it again.
It was only last month that CR7 paid for a young fan’s brain surgery, and here he is producing yet another reason for why, regardless of your opinion of him, he deserves your respect and admiration.
Fourteen-year old Ronaldo fan Dawid Pawlaczyk was in a coma for three months after getting hit by a car, during which time his family had been playing Ronaldo’s matches for Dawid to listen to. In a magical coincidence, according to Yahoo, the boy finally woke up on the same day his favorite player shot Portugal past Sweden in the World Cup qualifying play-offs.
After Polish outlet Fakt contacted Ronaldo about the story, the selfless star immediately treated the boy and his family to a trip to Madrid for Real’s Champions League clash against Dortmund, even giving the boy his jersey after the game.
And so the legend of Cristiano Ronaldo grows a little more.
