David Beckham gets the brews in for paramedic and injured patient

Simon Lloyd

Here’s the evidence David Beckham is a thoroughly sound bloke – and has more time on his hands these days.

The former England captain was out and about in central London earlier in the week, when he spotted a paramedic treating an elderly patient that had fallen.

“I was waiting with my patient for an ambulance to transfer him to hospital and although I was keeping him warm it was very cold outside,” Catherine Maynard, who works for London Ambulance’s Cycle Response Unit, told the Daily Mail.

 “All of a sudden, I looked up and saw someone who looked like David Beckham walking past us. He said hello and got in his car. I said to the man I was treating, “I think that was David Beckham.””

And a short while later, Beckham returned.

“Ten minutes later, he came back with a cup of coffee for me and a tea for the patient.”

“We were both very amused, and flattered. It was awful cycling around in the cold today and I couldn’t believe it when he came back with some hot drinks – I was so chuffed.”

Good on you Becks.
