Victoria Beckham in tears for David's last game

Los Angeles - Victoria Beckham cried as David Beckham played his last ever professional football match.

There was no sign of the fashion designer's usual poker face as she choked back sobs watching her husband play his last game for French team Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at the Parc des Princes in Paris on Saturday.

The sports star - who announced his retirement on Thursday - was also cheered on by the couple's children, Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10, Cruz, eight, and 21-month-old daughter Harper, as he battled it out against Brest football club.

'It's been very special'

Victoria's emotional outburst came after David was mobbed by his teammates and left the pitch in floods of tears when he was substituted in the 81st minute.

The 38-year-old star bowed out of an illustrious career to chants of, "Merci, David", from fans in the stadium, who included former President Nicolas Sarkozy.

David said after the victorious game: "It's been very special to finish my career here. It could not have been any more special.

"I just feel that it's the right time [to retire]. I feel that I've achieved everything that I could in my career. I wanted to go out as a champion.

"I've finished my career in a team that has treated me like I've been here for 10 years. After 22 years of playing football I'm going to take a few months to enjoy time with my family."
