Footballer Gareth Bale looks to trademark ‘heart’ goal celebration

Tottenham Hotspur footballer Gareth Bale is looking to trademark his heart-shaped goal celebration as well as the words ‘eleven of hearts’.

If the applications are passed, the image of a heart created from bending the index fingers and thumbs together with the number 11 would not be allowed to be pictured on clothing, jewellery or any form of accessories.

Bale has shown off his ‘heart’ celebration 26 times this season.
