His phenomenal success has led him to become one of the most recognizable personalities in the sport. Beckham recently agreed to become one of the faces for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, which will be held later this year.

Beckham’s close friend said in 2017: “He is very calm at the moment because he knows the great job he did for UNICEF. But he is just sad that people would question all that work.

“Honestly, he wasn’t so angry, but you say some things in private and in the heat of the moment. To be honest, he feels like he gave so much to his country. And sometimes you say something in private for anyone to say, and you really don’t think so.

“Although he was frustrated at those emails, he was over it the moment he sent them. Getting a knighthood is not what he’s dealing with. He doesn’t care if he gets a knighthood or not.”
