Just a day after Pies pointed out that Becks currently resembles a windswept junkie , news reaches us – and the rest of the planet – that Becks suffers from asthma, and has done since the age of four. He’s not a golden demigod after all – he’s just like the rest of us!
The midfielder was snapped puffing on an inhaler during the MLS Cup final, and one of his minions has since issued the following statement:
“David has suffered with this since he was a young boy but obviously it has had no effect on his performance. He has never sought to make it public but, if it does inspire any sufferer to think they can achieve great things, then so much the better.
“Some of the best athletes in the world suffer from asthma and there is no problem with his aerobic fitness.”
Looks like Team Beckham is keen to reassure the world – but especially Fabio Capello – that Prince David will be able to cope at high altitude in next summer’s World Cup.
Beckham’s asthma is mild – I suffer from mild asthma
