Bale was "model student"

Good Morning Britain visited Gareth Bale's former school, Whitchurch High this morning.

The current headmaster told us how Gareth was a "model student, brilliant in his books, very dutiful in his studies. But, of course, once he crossed that white line - absolutely dynamite."

Every student's special but you wouldn't really pick out - there's the superstar, the highest paid footballer in the world in ten years time or so. But that's a credit to Gareth that he focused on what he needed to focus on.

Chris Coleman believes Wales' Euro 2016 adventure is only the start of the journey, and not the end.

Wales' remarkable run to the last four of the Euros sees them take on Portugal on Wednesday night for a place in the final.

But manager Coleman has predicted an even brighter future for Gareth Bale and company with Wales starting their World Cup qualifying campaign in September.

There is also the prospect of Wales competing in next summer's Confederations Cup in Russia, their participation in which would be confirmed by them overcoming Portugal and world champions Germany beating France in the other semi-final.

People think the end of this tournament is the end of this journey, but it's not. It's part of the journey. The experience this group of boys will get from this.

They'll be here long after I am. This success is part of the learning process. We're here to compete and learn, and let's see if our best is enough to compete against the best.

– Chris Coleman, Wales Manager
