Beckham reported to be hurt in car crash

David Beckham has reportedly been injured in a car crash.

The 39-year-old hunk is said to have been hurt after collecting his eldest son Brooklyn Beckham from the Arsenal training ground this morning, with a number of eye witnesses taking to social media to discuss the unfortunate incident.

Thomas Cadman, who played for Brighton under-16s against Brooklyn's side, said on Twitter: "Weird to play against Brooklyn Beckham earlier. Even weirder to be currently stuck behind David Beckham as he has crashed his car. (sic)"

Archie Davies, a team-mate, said: "Just seen David Beckham looks like he got in a car crash and hurt his shoulder. Star struck by seeing David Beckham tbh."

It's been claimed that the incident involved one other vehicle and although David appeared to injure his shoulder in the collision, he is not thought to be hurt badly.

Brooklyn, 15, was signed by Arsenal on a short-term contract earlier this month, while his brothers - Romeo, 12, and Cruz, nine - have also been playing for the club's youth teams.

Prior to joining Arsenal, Brooklyn was linked to other football clubs in the English Premier League, including Chelsea.
