We’d like to pretend this is a very serious report on David Beckham’s latest role as an ambassador for Chinese football, which has actually taken a bit of a battering lately what with the match-fixing scandal and all that but…who are we kidding?

As a pre-kend treat (you are welcome!) we couldn’t resist posting up a picture of the delectable Mr B doing what he does best. Looking good.

On a slightly more serious note, his suave attire has got us thinking – wouldn’t it be great if all footballers looked this smart to play? Yes, there may be a few grass-stained shirts but it would definitely boost our interest in the beautiful game.

So if you’re listening boys, just tuck your ties in like Becks and you’ll be good to go!
