Beckham's just announced he has signed for Paris St Germain and will play for free and donate his salary to a kids charity.
the guy has had a lot of stick over the years...but to me this is a very selfless act, he doesn't need the fame or the attention of putting his body through another 6 months of football, and the risk of being labelled 'past-it' if he doesn't play well.
shows he's a genuine guy and a class act to me.
And, of course, gives him a £3.6m tax credit against sponsorship deals which might otherwise attract France's now penally high upper tax band, no? People are very naive!
