Last week David Beckham brought down the curtain on his football career after nearly 20 years at the top of the game. As a way of saying thank you to his mother (Sandra Beckham) and mother-in-law (Jackie Adams), for all their help over the years, he has splashed out on two brand new Audi Q3’s.
A friend of David’s spoke to the Sun Newspaper about the extravagant purchases. They said, “They are gorgeous vehicles that Jackie and Sandra love. When you think about how important their families are to David and Vic, and how huge both their careers are, you can only begin to imagine the sort of work and commitment their parents put in over the years.”
The friend went on to say, “From babysitting and international travel with zero notice to being counsellors for Posh and Becks when they couldn’t talk to anyone else – their closest family have done it all. There will probably be more gifts to follow as David settles down away from playing football. He has so many people he wants to say thank you to and obviously money is no object.”
When you have as much money as the Beckham’s two brand new Audi cars that retail at around £30,000 each relates to a few minutes work for David and Victoria. It is a wonderful gesture by David Beckham and one that many other top sportsman and celebrities should take note of.
