Gareth Bale has won August's Goal of the Month on BBC's Match of the Day.

There were no surprises when the Welsh star's volley in the 2-1 at Stoke City on August 21 was named as the month's top goal by Gary Lineker on Saturday night.

Aaron Lennon crossed and Gareth hit a shoulder-high, full volley back across Thomas Sorensen and into the top corner from 16 yards.

Harry Redknapp said at the time. "That was one of the great goals. To volley a ball that high was great technique, it was a fantastic goal. The finish was top-class."
