Gareth Bale has insisted there is evidence of aliens existing 'everywhere' and he's even managed to convince a teammate.
The winger sat down with Sky Sports and answered fan questions, with one wanting to know his beliefs regarding space.
In news which will surprise many, Bale is actually very interested in the subject and has watched a number of documentaries.
He explained: "The evidence is everywhere. People need to research it.
I've been looking into it for years and obviously there's a lot of fake stuff out there.
"But I think the US government recently released a few images, a few video footages, of Unidentified Flying Objects, so it's all online.
"And I think there are a few programmes on Netflix and stuff. So, yes, it's interesting. I'm quite into it and that's why I believe it.
"The amount of sightings we have - they can't all be false."
Bale spent last season on loan at Tottenham Hotspur and was asked if he's managed to make anyone a believer.
When told Harry Kane didn't believe in aliens, Bale quickly replied: "He hasn't done enough research, has he!"
One teammate who has come round to his way of thinking is defender Joe Rodon, who also plays with Bale for Wales.
The 31-year-old continued: "I've convinced him but he's still on the fence. He's leaning towards that there is, but he's still on the fence."
Bale is currently away at Euro 2020 with Wales and they're second in Group A, behind Italy who they face on Sunday.
Victory for Robert Page's side would see them qualify top of the group, but they are still likely to go through no matter the result.
In a detailed Instagram post, Sam Cooke started by assuring her followers that the pair were 'not on magic mushrooms or anything' as they enjoyed their summer vacation.

The 35-year-old went on to describe how the flying object 'flew down low past us' and 'turned and shot back high up in the sky, where it stayed for an hour maybe longer.'
Two hours later, Sam took to Instagram again to assure her followers that the flying object was "100 billion percent" not a drone.
