The Welshman struck twice as Spurs beat Burnley 4-0 on Sunday, with the on-loan Real Madrid star rolling back the years.
After opening the scoring just two minutes in the game, Bale and Son celebrated by doing 'Welsh Mafia' gestures.
So I've just realised Sonny is doing a 'K' for the Korean Mafia, Bale's doing the Welsh Mafia and Lucas is doing, well, the Lucas Mafia. :sob::sob::sob:- :tm: (@thfc_ishan) February 28, 2021

He pulled his face at the Brazilian and later on, after Moura did it again when Bale bagged his second of the game in the second half, wagged his fingers to the camera.

"Cause everyone's seen that ours is welsh mafia, he's decided go with just 'Lucas'," Bale told the club's official website.
Bale and fellow Welshman did a little tutorial for the official Spurs channel a few days back.
Having struggled to get going in his second spell at Spurs, Bale produced his best performance yet against Burnley yesterday and manager Jose Mourinho was full of praise.
"There is not one single manager in the world that doesn't play Gareth Bale if Gareth Bale is in very good condition," he told Sky Sports.
"There is not one, but now he is better than ever. I'm just pleased for the team because he helped the team to win. I'm happy for him."
