Watch Brooklyn Beckham compete with his dad in the 22 Push-Up Challenge

Brooklyn Beckham has followed in his father’s footsteps by taking on the 22 Push-Up Challenge to raise money for charity.

The 17-year-old was challenged by dad David, who shared his own effortless workout at 44,000 feet.

The retired footballer accepted Guy Ritchie’s nomination for the latest social media craze, #22pushups, which challenges people to do 22 press-ups for 22 days to raise awareness of suicide among military veterans. David, 41, completed his first video in the aisle of an aeroplane.

Brooklyn took up the challenge and wrote: “Thank you for the nomination!! This is me accepting your challenge Dad to honour the 22 Service men that kill themselves daily.”

We’re not quite sure who looked more impressive in performing their press-ups. Father or son?
