Awarded an OBE in June 2003.

Married to Spice Girl Victoria Adams, David Beckham's dedication to his profession and family make him a superb role model for his millions of admirers. Becks' superstar status meant the healing of a broken metatarsal bone in the left foot of England's captain was the nation's major topic of conversation in the approach to World Cup 2002.

A Manchester United professional since 1993, David has been a fixture in the England team since making his debut in a World Cup qualifier in Moldova in 1996.

His stature was memorably displayed when qualification was clinched in the final group game against Greece at Old Trafford in October 2001.

He was the most influential on the field, then converted the remarkable last gasp 25-yard free-kick - a moment that is now etched in sporting history.

With the courage, maturity and skill of a world class player, amid unprecedented speculation, David joined Real Madrid in June 2003 for a reported total fee of £24.5million with a four-year contract.

With the only goal of the game in the Round of 16 tie against Ecuador at the 2006 finals in Germany, Beckham became the first England player to score at three World Cup finals.
