I was very tempted to add a sarcastic remark as someone has already done,  but on reflection it seemed a little unfair.

Whatever his faults,  Beckham is a decent man and someone that kids can admire.  There is no history of scandal, no drugs, no tales of 'drunken drug crazed sex romps with under-aged girls', and the usual type of rubbish that the gutter press drag up about people in the public eye.  His main concern in life seems to be to play football,  earn obscene amounts of money (more fool those who pay it and support the game), and spend it for the good of his family in particular, and for the underprivileged.

He has supported worthwhile causes,  made appeals for lost children, visited sick kids in hospital, and so on.  Can we fault that?

As for his wife .... well,  that's a different story.  No doubt she's his punishment for something he did way back!

If anyone is interested - according to the Daily Telegraph  he has paid £1.37m for a 19th Century house and 250 acres of woodland near the village of Bargemon from Catherine de Tscharmer.

Apart from the fact that it should bring property prices right down?CB
