David Beckham worth more after Olympics

2012-08-15 22:34
Los Angeles - David Beckham is expected to bank a fortune in the next 12 months thanks to his involvement in the 2012 London Olympic Games and its opening ceremony.

A leading Hollywood management and marketing agency said that the 37-year-old sportsman has always been a huge figure in culture and sports but his latest job could take his success to the next level.

They said: "His appearance at the Olympics has taken his appeal to a new level.

"And Beckham looked like a movie star on the speedboat, that ups his stock as a model and brand representative.

"Of course Hollywood will also be interested in him too."

Dream dinner party line-up

David recently said he would love to have dinner with Jack Nicholson and US President Barack Obama.

The soccer star has named his dream dinner party line-up, and sided with royalty and political leaders.

When asked his dream line-up, he said: "I'd invite Jack Nicholson, Prince Harry, Prince William, Boris Johnson and President Obama."

When asked what he'd serve for dessert, he replied: "My favourite dessert has to be treacle sponge with custard, with Ambrosia, but I also like Angel Delight."
